Catalogues and indexes

Each collection of records held by the National Archives of Scotland (NAS) has a catalogue or index to help you find the right material whether it’s a file or a single document.

* Catalogues are lists of archives according to where they came from and when they were created (their provenance). The catalogues have an alpha-numeric reference system, for example HD4/5.
* Indexes by surname, placename or topic are sometimes made of certain types of record to allow you to find individual documents easily.

The catalogues and indexes compiled by the NAS are listed below.
