Discover Your Scottish Family History
Welcome to the Scots Ancestry Research Society, the oldest established organisation tracing family history in Scotland.

bullet pointThe society has operated since 1945 and has prepared over 70,000 reports for clients from all over the world with Scottish roots.

They have included rock stars, wine growers, film stars, a Danish Baron and several Lord Provosts. We have traced families back to Rob Roy, Robert Burns and Robert the Bruce but of course most people do not have such well-known ancestors!

All families are of interest to us, however, and any piece of genealogical research will give fascinating, often moving, sometimes tragic insights into the lives of Scotland's people over the centuries.

We are based in Edinburgh and undertake genealogical research in New Register House and the National Archives of Scotland where the original historic records of Births, Marriages, Deaths, Census returns, Testaments and Sasines are held for the whole of Scotland.
