Might be a stupid question, but does anyone know if the Worldwide subscription includes the Scottish Records?

Thanks.

Yes, it covers all ancestry records. What were you looking for in particular ?

The best site for Scottish records is Scotlands people, they have many records not available elsewhere.

Thank you - I've used Scotlands People in the past, but find it quite expensive, so was just wondering if Worldwide Ancestry would mean I didn't need to use Scotlands People.

You would still have to use Scotlands People, they do have records others don't as Rosie rightly said.

Worldwide Ancestry should not have any more Scottish records than those available on UK Ancestry  :-\

There are no certs. or census images for scottish records on ancestry or any other site, only transcriptions.

If you're searching e.g. a marriage, it will not give you any info. other than the names of the parties & where (RD).

You need to use SP for the original (low cost credits/pay-per-view with minimum 10 batches for 40 credits = 6 images at 1.50 per cert.) to find out their ages, occs, actual place of marriage (e.g. which church), their actual addresses (not just the RD), who the parents were with mothers' maiden names, fathers' occs. & who the witnesses were.

Having used other means whether free or by subscription sites, once you know how to manipulate SP to your advantage, I'm sure you will find SP very cheap in comparison with any other government site with a whole lot of extra info. not found on other full price certs. anywhere.
