New beginners guide to Scottish research from Family Search

The family history arm of the Church of the Latter Day Saints, FamilySearch.org, has placed a beginners guide to Scottish ancestry online for the early statutory period, which commenced in 1855. Entitled Finding Records of your Ancestors Scotland 1855 - 1901, the site contains some basic tips, charts and information to getting your research underway. The 26 page document is a PDF file which can be downloaded to your computer, and is accessible at http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/docs/Finding_Records_Scotland.pdf .

There is also an English equivalent at http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/docs/Finding_Records_England.pdf - worth looking at if you are just starting out.
