We note that there is a huge amount of information available on old records that are now available on the Internet archive.  There are some 50 volumes available from the Scottish Record Society but it's not at all clear what each volume offers as far as content is concerned so we thought we'd undertake some work to make it easier to decide which volume to download. Each volume takes you to its own page where we provide the Preface from the volume and in Volume 1 we provide a sample page of the format used. In addition, we are using this page to add any other directory we come across. You can contact the Scottish Records Society at:
