ScotlandsPeople offer a facility that is unavailable to people researching English or Welsh ancestors.
 
 
 
The images of parish registers, census returns and certificates can be downloaded from the site instantly for the cost of a few credits. Instant results and at less cost than English/Welsh versions mean that Scottish ancestry can (with some careful searching and a little thought) be quicker and cheaper via ScotlandsPeople.<br>
 
 
 
Searches are free, the results and images are accessed on a "pay per view" basis. Credits are puchased and these credits are used as "payment".<br>
 
 
 
Not all events can be searched for on the site. Privacy and freedom of information mean that only the following records are available online at present:<br>
 
 
 
*[[Visual Introduction to ScotlandsPeople]]
 
 
 
 
 
*'''Births''' cover the period 1855-1906<br>
 
 
 
*'''Marriages''' cover the period from 1855-1926<br>
 
 
 
*'''Deaths''' cover the period from 1855 to 1956<br>
 
 
 
 
 
Later events can be researched "offline". Further details can be found at [http://www.gro-scotland.gov.uk/famrec/bdm.html Modern Certificate Application Methods] on the General Register Office for Scotland website.<br>
