Link: The Scottish Archive Network Knowledge Base (SCAN)
« on: Wednesday 06 February 13 16:04 GMT (UK) »
This is a great and growing resource which provides a fantastic source of information and links across all of Scotland both on a general and county level.

Quoting from the site direct:

The Scottish Archive Network Knowledge Base is a database of answers to questions frequently asked in Scottish archives, combined with a directory of where to find historical records - arranged geographically. This facility is developing all the time and will build into a major research resource for all types of archive users, from complete beginners to regular researchers, with contributions from our participating archives.

The Knowledge Base is arranged into two sections: record types and subjects (including people).

www.scan.org.uk/knowledgebase/

To see the range of subjects and topics covered, just click on the drop down list at the bottom, under 'Record Types' and 'Subjects' and select from there.

To link up by county, see www.scan.org.uk/knowledgebase/gazetteer/counties.htm and just click on the county of interest.
