Coronavirus – ScotlandsPeople Services

In line with advice from the UK and Scottish Government and to delay the spread of Coronavirus we have decided to close our Historical, Legal and ScotlandsPeople search rooms in Edinburgh and to halt the production of all types of certificates and official extracts until further notice. We will continue to respond to online enquiries but we may not be able to give as full or as complete answers as usual. Further information is available here.
