Scottish Genealogy Research is a team of researchers with over 25 years of experience of searching and interpreting the genealogical records of Scotland. We define genealogy as being the linking of individuals by documentary evidence and only use primary sources. We are dedicated, passionate, and believe that a family tree can be more than just names and dates. We are proud to say that we leave no stone unturned and if possible will discover what your ancestors did to put bread on the table. Where they were born, married and died. We guarantee total accuracy in our transcriptions and are honest enough to say “unknown” should a written record be illegible.

Prior to statutory registration births, baptisms, marriages and deaths were the responsibility of the Church of Scotland and are referred to as the Old Parish Registers. The responsibility for maintaining these registers was normally the parish minister or session clerk.

Statutory registration of births death, and marriages began on the 1st Jan 1855 when it became a legal requirement to register and record all such events. The information contained in these records has evolved over the years, but the amount of information recorded is the envy of many countries.

Scottish family history or ancestry has become one of the biggest past-times or hobbies and we at Scottish Genealogy Research understand the work and effort you have spent compiling your Scottish Family Search.

Who is in your Scottish family tree?


The reinterment of Richard III earlier this week brought back memories of a previous project conducted by Scottish Genealogy Research. Richard’s identity had been established by DNA testing and the results had been confirmed by respected experts.  

Just as millions were enthralled it reminded me of a previous project a number of years ago.

As we have strict rule of client confidentiality we have not recorded the surname.

 Our client at the start of the project informed us that his great grandmother had always said that there was “a lady” in the family. Such stories are not uncommon but can become embellished through the generations and our research procedure of linking individuals by documentary evidence is never influenced by family stories.  However our intensive research did in fact prove without doubt that the story was true and our client was a distant relative of a Scottish aristocrat.
