PEOPLE in Clydebank will find it easier to do some digging into their family tree now a new set of historical records has gone online.

Details of birth, marriage, and death entries are available through family history website ScotlandsPeople.

Every January, staff at the National Records of Scotland (NRS) add information on people who were born 100 years ago, married 75 years ago, or died 50 years ago.

It means Clydebank residents can now search for details of those who were born in 1922, tied the knot in 1947, or passed away in 1972.

Until now, those records would have only been available to people visiting an NRS building or a family history centre or by ordering a copy by post.

Veronica Schreuder, NRS archivist, said: “The release of new records on ScotlandsPeople is always exciting for researchers, and the birth, marriage, and death records now added to the site will help many people find out more about their family history.

“Each year’s records contain a wealth of information for those just starting to map out their family tree and for those seeking to branch out their understanding from the comfort of their own homes.”
