Accessing birth records, for people who have been adopted in Scotland
« on: Thursday 29 April 21 18:12 BST (UK) »
I came across this really informative guide from Aberdeen Council Council:

www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/media/16383/accessing-birth-records-in-scotland-march-2016.pdf

Very clearly sets out all the info on records, including how to research, where to look and much more.

Formal adoption in Scotland came into law in 1930 www.nrscotland.gov.uk/research/guides/adoption-records
