Scotlands People

Over the past two weeks, our research focus has been the National Records of Scotland (Scotlands People)

Although we researched Scotlands People in its early days, we recognised that there is now a lot more records. We found:

  • Birth Registrations -     24 PASKs, 4 PASKEs
  • Marriage Registrations -  45 PASKs, 1 PASKE, and 1 PAASKEs
  • Death Registrations - 17 PASKs, 3 PASKEs, and 1 PAASKE
  • Divorce - 5 PASKs
  • Electoral Roll (available at FindmyPast) - 24 PASKs, 4 PASKEs
Whilst, we have not been able to identify all those listed, we have updated a lot of narratives relating to the PASK(E)s and their families, who lived in Scotland for part of their lives.  

We also identified another non-UK based family: 

Rudolph Harald PAASKE lived in Copenhagen, Denmark in the 1850s #20127
Rudolph Harald PAASKE lived in Copenhagen, Denmark. His son Viktor Emanuel PAASK lived with his wife Elizabeth, and their family in Leith, Midlothian, Scotland.  

This information has been included in the website update yesterday, Friday 14 July 2017.

24 new narratives have been added, and 42 narratives updated, since the last website update on 1 July. There are now a total of 12,165 detailed narratives available on the website and 19,555 people (30 new) people in our database.

These updates mainly relate to the following charts / family groups:
A full list of the recent changes to the narratives is available in the New or Changed Narratives section.
