The General Register Office for Scotland (GROS)

The General Register Office for Scotland (New Register House, Edinburgh; www.gro-scotland.gov.uk) holds all of Scotland's civil registration records, census records, and Old Parish Registers. However, the GROS also is a repository for some of the more esoteric and obscure registers compiled by the Registrar General throughout Scotland's history, some of them dating back to 1553.

The following is a list of some of the most important of the lesser-known information registers held by the GROS. Much of this information can be accessed on microfilm, but some of it (indexes, and in some cases, digital scans of the actual records) may be available online; refer to the next section, Scotlandspeople, for information on availability of online records.
