ScotlandsPeople Releases 1865 Valuation Rolls

The following announcement has been made by the ScotlandsPeople website:

“We’re¬†delighted to announce that the Valuation Rolls for 1865 have just been added to the ScotlandsPeople website.

The new records, which are FREE* to search, comprise 1.3 million indexed names and 76,512 digital images. The Rolls, which are searchable by both name and address, cover every owner, tenant and occupier of property in 1865, offering a fascinating window into the lives of mid-Victorian Scots.”

The FREE search feature is in effect until April 19, 2015 but viewing images until that date will still cost two credits.

ScotlandsPeople is the ‘official home’ of the records held by the National Records of Scotland in Edinburgh, Scotland.
