Scotland's People releases annual update

More than 233,000 newly-released Scottish records of births in 1917, marriages in 1942 and deaths in 1967 are now available through Scotland's People.

Births in 1917 were at the lowest number since 1856 as a result of the disruption to family life caused by the continuing conflict in the First World War. Read more here.

The 47,514 marriages recorded in Scotland in 1942 include those of servicemen from various allied countries stationed in Scotland. Read more here.

The newly-released images include entries for 59,729 deaths recorded in Scotland in 1967. Compare that to the 55,511 deaths recorded in 2017. Read more here.
