More Valuation Records Coming to Scotland's People

After making the 1915 Valuation Rolls available on Scotland's People, the people at NRA did a survey to see what years would next be most helpful to researchers. The overwhelming response was 1905 - to show information on their ancestors between the census years of 1901 and 1911. Scotland's People are in the process of digitizing those records now and we  hope to see them online in the next year or so. The hope is that they will continue to go back every 10 years, offering people a valuable tool in keeping up with their ancestors between census periods.

  1. The records are already digitised - they've been available for consultation at the National Records of Scotland for a couple of years. The records will be released on a quarterly basis, with 1905-06 next, then 1895-06, and so on, before turning to the post 1915-16 records.
