Old Scottish Releases Records from Across Scotland

An independent Genealogy research company - Old Scottish Genealogy and Family History, run by Penny Lewis and Fergus Smith - have released 150,000 free historical records from across Scotland.

These are records held at the National Records of Scotland. Some of the records include:  rolls of male heads of families, baptismal and marriage registers, Kirk Session records and Poor Law records.

Here is the link to the website:


  1. Thanks for sharing this Christine. Just to clarify: the records currently at that link are rolls of male heads of families in terms of the Veto Act of 1834. I'll be posting an article on our blog shortly explaining these in more detail.

  2. Thanks for clarifying, Fergus. Loads of excitement on social media with the records being made available! Well done to you and Penny.
