Scottish Births

After 1855 it’s easy to find records of Scottish births since, like England and Wales, they were registered. You can search online for births more than a hundred years ago at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk. For births more recent than that, you’ll either need to undertake the search in person at the Scottish General Register Office in Edinburgh, or submit a request for them to search for you (which they will do). It costs a little to consult the records (you pay by the day), but the investment is worthwhile, since they cover a vast range. The indexes are computerised, making your search much easier, and you’ll only pay an additional fee if you require photocopies. for more click here
