You can take a laptop with you, and there is a socket to plug it into.

That's a thought.  I'll be taking a tour around the Highlands so not sure I'll want to lug a laptop around with me. Thanks anyway for the suggestion.

Hi Genetrix  can I just say that the Genealogy Centre at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow still just charges 15 per day and you can access all the same information. isk

That's exactly the same charge as for Register House.

I might have mentioned that you can now book your seat in Register House online. I know the Glasgow centre is very busy and you have to book there to be sure of getting a seat.

The Mitchell and Register House always had slightly different search facilities.

I haven't been to The Mitchell at all this year.
I don't expect that they have but, I wonder if they have also changed to:
www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

Has anyone been recently?

EDIT:
The Mitchell alway retain 2 seats that are not available for advanced bookings and use them for anyone who turns up on the day.
Wednesdays are usually quiet and even the staff are not sure why this should be. LOL

Hello Isk:  Thanks for your suggestion re the Mitchell Library.  I went there four years ago and got lots of information.  As I said though, I have a full free day in Edinburgh to search the records.  Any time in Glasgow is reserved for shopping, shopping, shopping....
