I've just signed up to Scotland's people and I am amazed that how easy it was to find my ancestors.
Within 25 minutes I had Wedding certificates that enabled me to trace back to 1850 when public records began .
I can go back further using the church records but although I can find a couple of death entries , these carry no other information apart from the name, place and date of death.
It's also possible that my ancestors settled here as the occupation of the oldest ancestor was a sailor .
Any tips on how to go about digging further?
I have only just started last night so hoping that I will become more experienced as time goes by.
