ScotlandsPeople Centre - interactive tutorial

The ScotlandsPeople Centre website is getting awfully good these days! If you have not had a chance to use the centre yet, but are curious to know more about how to research your Scottish ancestry within the building, you can do a free two hour taster session each day at either 10am or 2pm.

However, you can also now look at an interactive tutorial on the website at - you'll need to have Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer to view this. The tutorial guides you through not just the records themselves, but the methodology you will need to follow to trace your family through earlier generations.

Also on the site, the news section now has a slide show presentation of the day in April when Billy Connolly and Sir James Black both paid the centre a visit. This can be viewed at
