ScotlandsPeople (www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk) has updated the civil registration records available online with the following additions - births from 1922, marriages from 1947, and deaths from 1972.
There's also the further ludicrous addition of Scottish Cabinet records, this time from 2007, on what is quite clearly a Scottish ancestry website - it woud seem that the NRS has nowhere else to put them. If even vaguely interested on that front, you'll find more details at https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/news/2023/2007-scottish-cabinet-records-to-be-released-online!

Just one clarification. It is registrations of births, marriages and deaths from 1922, so if like me you were waiting on seeing certificates from events late in 1922, you may well have to wait another year.ReplyDelete
