Exchange of Information from Certificates etc.

Exchange of Spare Information

Scottish statutory birth and death registers from 1855 until well into the 20th century contain 3 records on each register page; marriage registers contain two records per page.

In other words we all have a lot of spare information which could potentially be of great value to others.

It's not the main purpose of TalkingScot to act as a site for the exchange of such spare information. Instead we would refer you to specialist sites which deal with such exchanges, such as http://www.sctbdm.com/ run by Sue Lund.

Note that it is a breach of Crown copyright to supply someone else with a copy of a Scottish statutory extract (certificate) or a copy of an extract from a census or OPR entry, or the matching TIFF image from ScotlandsPeople.

However, the information itself is public domain, so that there is nothing to prevent the supply of a transcription of the information.
