Scotlands Places now Free

We all know now that ScotlandsPeople website has had an overhaul and it is now free to view the indexes. We get so busy looking for our ancestor under People we forget to look for them under Places.  All resources on ScotlandsPlaces are now available free of charge.

Besides looking for maps and images for parishes and counties where our ancestors lived, you will also find these records:  historic tax rolls, burgh registers and official reports. Some records for some places are beyond repair so will not be available.
You can browse through all the titles, or go to Places A-Z on the menu bar and see what records are available for your area of research.

Looking for my Bruce ancestors in Fyvie I find 650 records including maps, broadsides and images (which I can filter), two tax rolls and a medical report.

Gail Dever at Genealogy à la carte says we are going to need this long weekend while we celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving and search the new Notorial Records at Ancestry.

Well you may need more than just one long weekend to look into all these records now available to you for free!
