Online Genealogy Resources

During your stay with us in Edinburgh, you can trace your Scottish ancestry by visiting local genealogy centres, such as the ScotlandsPeople Centre and the Central Library. At these physical locations, you’ll be able to access a wealth of historic records, registers and directories. But you can start your journey on the internet, where there are many genealogy resources at your fingertips. Here, we explore some of best online resources for researching your family history in Scotland.
