The Scottish Genealogy Society, which was founded in 1953 and is run by volunteers, helps with research into family and local history. Its library contains a wide selection of material, including local histories, military, trades and profession lists, directories, school and university rolls, and individual family histories. It also holds: a collection of monumental inscriptions, burial, death and mortcloth records; copies of Old Parochial Registers for every parish in Scotland on microfilm, with OPR and IGI indexes; and a large number of original Censuses in microfilm.
