If you have Scottish ancestors then I am sure that you will find this YouTube video by Chris Paton really useful. The video gives us a great overview of the historic civil registration system in Scotland in a clear way. If you are researching your Scots ancestors then you will learn a lot from this as it covers Births, Marriages, Deaths, the Registers of Corrected Entries (some readers may not even know about these!), Still births, Adoption and Divorce. I was particularly interested in the Book of Scottish Connections that is for people who live overseas but who have a Scottish connection that they can verify – I had not heard of this before I watched this video!
Chris is a professional genealogist who specialises in Scottish and Irish research and is the author of a number of books that I have no hesitation in recommending including Tracing Your Scottish Ancestry Through Church & State Records and for those of you with Irish ancestors Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet.
