How to Get Full Details for a Death Entry

   web site:


You can search in the indexes found at  ScotlandsPeople to a comprehensive set of a wide range of historical official records held by the National Records of Scotland, and not only for the death registers found indexed on my web site(s).  The National Records of Scotland maintains a searchable index for statutory registers, church records, census records, and valuation rolls, among other records.  The explanatory and search pages are free, and viewing of an individual entry is on a 'pay-per-view' basis.  A paper copy of an official extract can be ordered electronically for delivery by ordinary post at the statutory fee.

In my opinion, it is a great idea to acquire from the NRS a full extract of your "record of interest".  If any changes or corrected entries have been made by the Registrar General for Scotland in the last 30 or 40 years, you will want to know about them.  If you are like me, you would agree that there can be nothing as rewarding as seeing the actual record for yourself - especially since my web site has not given you the actual date of death anyway!

My transcriptions on this web site are accurate to the best of my ability.

 Or, are you my cousin?

 Ask me if I am your cousin! 
Perhaps you are a cousin, connected to my South Ronaldsay Line?
Contact me and maybe I can help.  Otherwise, unless we may be related, please know that I will be unable to provide complete death data for all of the entries which I have indexed on this web site, per my agreement with the GROS.

Thank you for visiting my web site!
  I would enjoy hearing your feedback!    - Lisa.
