Burns Monument Centre, Kilmarnock

East Ayrshire Council is currently building a new genealogy centre in Kilmarnock's Kay Park for people wishing to do research without having to travel to Glasgow or Edinburgh to access digital images of Scottish birth, marriage, death and census returns (as at the General Register Office in Edinburgh), as well as local newspapers, maps, microfilms and much more. Called the Burns Monument Centre, it should be open later in 2008.

The centre will also host rare Burns memorabilia, and if you take the fancy, they'll even let you get married there too!
