Researching your Scottish ancestry

Researching your Scottish ancestry

Researching family history is a little different for those with Scottish rather than English or Welsh heritage. While lots of English and Welsh records are available in a variety of places online, many Scottish records can only be found on one site (ScotlandsPeople). 

'Many' isn't the same as 'all', however. Here at Findmypast we have millions of opportunities for you to discover more about your Scottish heritage. These records include millions of newspaper articles, census records, military records and more. 

We've put together this page to give you more information on the Scottish records we have ready for you to explore.
