Are you researching Scottish ancestors? If so, you will find this article on Scottish Burial Records interesting. It’s full of online resources. Chris Paton and his The GENES Blog (GEnealogy News and EventS) are well known on both sides of the Atlantic.


There’s even more goodness from across the Atlantic. Irish is adding an additional two years of birth, marriage and death records to the website. The marriage Index data along with additional images will also be updated for the years 1864-1869 inclusive. The years covered by the release of the historic records of Births, Marriages and Deaths after this update will be:

  1. Births: 1864 to 1918

  2. Marriages: 1864* to 1943

  3. Deaths: 1878* to 1968
