ScotlandsPeople Centre update

Some developments at the ScotlandsPeople Centre in Edinburgh...

a) The stair well leading up to the Court of the Lord Lyon (inside New Register House) is being painted over the next two-three weeks, meaning that access to the Dundas Room will be through the garden entrance for this period.

b) The removal of access to the statutory BMD fiche will be introduced to the Dundas Room on Monday 15th February.

c) The centre has also discovered that some of the 1851 census images and indexes are missing from the main ScotlandsPeople computer system and also from DIGROS in the Dundas Room. The missing pages will be scanned over the next couple of weeks. The affected districts are as follows:

Missing images
277 Careston
278 Cortachy and Clova
279 Coupar Angus
280 Coupar Angus
280 Craig
281 Dun

Missing Images and Indexes
34 Bower
35 Canisbay
36 Dunnet (estimate)
37 Halkirk
37A Keiss (estimate)
37A Keiss (Partially missing)
268 Strachan
374 Logie

Whilst the images will be sorted imminently, the indexing may take a wee while longer, though the centre is looking at options to try to make access available as soon as possible.

(With thanks to the ScotlandsPeople Centre)
