COVID-19 Lockdown Update

Although all archives are currently closed with no immediate prospect of opening, we’d be happy to discuss plans for research with you now and in some cases we may have enough sources at hand or online to solve particular family history issues and problems that you may have. Please get in touch.

Family History Research Rate :  £25 per hour / £90 per 4 hours

This rate includes any research that we may need to carry out in Edinburgh (such as the National Records of Scotland) or local archive centres in the South of Scotland (in Hawick, Dumfries and Ayr).  Expenses may be payable for required visits to archives elsewhere.
