For seven days only the Catholic Parish Register indexes are free to search on http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk ! You can explore the indexes for Catholic Births, Marriages, Deaths and Other Events for free from now until 9 January at 23:59 GMT.

The Catholic Parish Registers are records of sacramental events recorded by the Roman Catholic Church in Scotland between 1703-1903. The registers comprise records of births and baptisms, marriages, deaths and burials, and also a small set of fascinating records of communicants, sick calls, first confessions and seat rents.

Too late for my Scottish ancestry, do you know if records from the 15-1600's are available anywhere? Would be interesting to check out my Scottish ancestors; Maxwell, Lawrence Born 1595 and (K)Nitter, Henrik born around 1550's..
