Recent ScotlandsPeople website updates

The ScotlandsPeople website at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk, which hosts many Scottish vital records, censuses and other materials. and which was recently relaunched in a new form that was clearly not properly tested in advance, continues to have a vast amount of improvement work to get it back up to scratch. The most recent updates, announced on May 5th, are outlined at https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/content/what-we-are-working-on.

For future developments, the site has stated that work on the 1935 Valuation Roll is currently under way, and an additional batch of Other Church Registers of baptisms, marriages and burials will be added to the site soon. Future releases will also include records such as kirk session material and other legal records.
