ScotlandsPeople Christmas message

From those awfully nice folk at ScotlandsPeople...

ScotlandsPeople would like to wish everyone the very best for the festive season.

2009 has been a busy year for ScotlandsPeople with the launch of the modern Statutory Marriage indexes, Old Parish Records Deaths and Burials indexes and images, 1881 census indexes and images and the Catholic Parish Registers of Births and Baptisms.

We are pleased to give you advanced notice of the early release of the new years statutory images containing records from the Statutory Register of Births for 1909, the Statutory Register of Marriages for 1934, and the Statutory Register of Deaths for 1959. Look out for further details early next week.

Please note that our help desk is planning to observe the public holidays of 25th and 28th December and 1st Jan and 4th Jan. During this time we will however keep you informed of the site status via the normal online message system.

If you are coming to visit the ScotlandsPeople centre in Edinburgh over the festive period then make sure to call in to see the family history of Formula 1 and shooting champion Sir Jackie Stewart OBE as the final distinguished Scot until the end of December. Check the website for more details www.scotlandspeoplehub.gov.uk/scotlands-people-centre/famous-scots.html

Don't forget to check out the latest edition of Discover My Past Scotland Magazine, published online by brightsolid ltd, at www.discovermypast.co.uk/scotland.php. January's edition is out on 29th December.

Finally, look out shortly for exciting announcements regarding the addition of more data to the site.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone from ScotlandsPeople.
