Changes on ScotlandsPeople on 1 April. :eek:

1911 Census

The Registrar General for Scotland has announced that the 1911 census will be released on Tuesday 5 April 2011.

The images of the original summary books include the name, address, age, occupation, birthplace and marital status of everyone counted in the 1911 census, as well as details about their children. For the first time, the census images will be presented in full colour.

Extension of validity period for credits plus increase in cost of credits

We are pleased to announce that from 1 April 2011, any credits purchased will be valid for one year rather than 90 days. Remember that you do not lose any un-used credits when the period of validity has expired; when you buy more credits they will simply be added to your existing credits.

Since we launched ScotlandsPeople back in 2002 we have kept the cost of 30 credits to £6. We also launched the provision of Extracts for modern statutory records back in 2008 and the cost of an Extract purchased on line has remained at £10.

From 1 April 2011 the cost of 30 credits will rise to £7 and the cost of an Extract will rise to £12. These changes have been necessary to help fund the flexibility and availability of our services as well as fund the cost of providing an Extract and were approved by the Scottish Parliament through the Registration Services (Fees) Amendment (Scotland) Regulations 2010.

Please note that it will still cost 1 credit to view up to 25 indexes and 5 credits to view an image of the statutory or census records. It will also cost 5 credits to view the page for the forthcoming 1911 census when it is released on 5 April 2011.
