ScotlandsPeople Centre, Saturday opening, 24 October 2009

On Saturday 24 October 2009 we are opening our doors (9:00 to 16:00) for free introductory one-hour taster sessions in the Adam Dome, General Register House for new visitors to the ScotlandsPeople Centre. The Famous Scots exhibition in New Register House will also be open and it will be possible to visit our shop for gift ideas, books and other mementos. Please note, the other search rooms and café facility will be closed.

We are making taster sessions available to people who are new to family history research. The one-hour session will be an ideal opportunity for you to become familiar with our digitised records and see how easy it is to start tracing your family tree. Please note, only one taster session per person will be permitted. The sessions will be held at the following times:- 09:30, 11:00, 12:30 and 14:00. We expect them to be very busy and on this occasion places can be booked in advance. To reserve a seat, please telephone 0131 314 4300 weekdays between 09:00 and 16:30. You can also book a place by sending an email to bookings@scotlandspeoplehub.gov.uk.

General Register House is at the east end of Princes Street, opposite the Balmoral Hotel. The entrance to the Centre is behind the statue of the Duke of Wellington.

The Famous Scots exhibition will be open between 09:00 and 16:00. This is a free exhibition in New Register House. Our latest celebrity is the Oscar-winning actress, Tilda Swinton.
