Interesting Facts

  • The name ‘Scotland’ comes from the Latin term ‘Scoti’, which originally applied to all Gaels.
  • There are many more people with Scottish ancestry living abroad than the total population of Scotland. In the 2001 Census, 9.2 million Americans reported some kind of Scottish descent.
  • The west of Scotland is usually warmer than the east, due to the effect of Atlantic Ocean currents and the colder surface temperatures of the North Sea. Tiree, in the Inner Hebrides, is one of the sunniest places in the country.
  • Although the Bank of England is the central bank for the UK, three Scottish clearing banks still issue their own Sterling banknotes: the Bank of Scotland; the Royal Bank of Scotland; and the Clydesdale Bank.
  • Political and social unrest led to new tensions between England and Scotland after World War I. In January 1919, the British Government deployed tanks and soldiers in central Glasgow.
  • In 1996, the General Register Office for Scotland estimated that 30% of the population is fluent in Scots – a distinct language that’s very similar to English.

Scotland census research

Scottish national censuses are taken on the same dates as those in England and Wales, but have different rules and arrangements. As in the south, the first census that’s really useful to family historians is the 1841 record, as it lists all the people within each household. Further details, such as family relationships, occupations and birthplaces, were added as time went on. Scottish censuses are subject to strict rules that keep them private for 100 years, so 1901 is the most recent record that’s currently available.

Census records are held by the , and you can view them in person at the ScotlandsPeople Centre in Edinburgh. You’ll find full transcriptions of the records from 1841-1901, with all the details from the original records, on Ancestry.

 

Scotland vital records

  • Parish registers2020欧洲杯在线网址 - Civil registration was introduced later in Scotland than in England – in 1855. Before this year, the best resources for tracing vital events are the registers of christenings, marriages and burials kept by the established church – in this case the Church of Scotland. These records are less reliable than their English counterparts, due to inconsistent recording and preservation. However, they remain an essential resource.

    2020欧洲杯在线网址You’ll find a growing collection of parish registers on Ancestry, with both searchable transcriptions and images of original records. If we don’t yet have records for your area, the best place to start is the local record office

  • Civil registers - After 1855, you should find all your ancestors’ events listed in the state registers. These are more detailed than their English counterparts, with gems such as the date of the parents’ marriage in birth entries, and the mothers’ maiden names for marriages. You can search the indexes, and indeed view many of the original entries, at the ScotlandsPeople Centre. For more recent records, you’ll need to order an official copy while you’re there.
