Scottish - New Records

ScotlandsPeople has just released a new series of records, searchable online

If you've not been using this fabulous website you are in for a major treat!! Scotland Kept some of the BEST records of anywhere, and now a great many are available online at ScotlandsPeople!! Before this site was available I paid something like $35.00CA for my Dad's birth registration. On ScotlandsPeople it would cost me less than $3.00CA.

So they keep adding new records and today the Military Service Appeals Tribunal records appeared. They are records of those who sought exemption from military service, and the reasons why. Even if you don't find anyone, the examples shown make for an interesting - usually sad - peek into Scottish lives.

And don't miss all the other record types they have ... listed on the left side of the home page. There is a wealth of free information on the site - great background details.
