Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - SCOTTISH ANCESTORS -

A feu­dal sys­tem still gripped Scot­land un­til 2004, and the doc­u­ments gen­er­ated when land was in­her­ited are de­scribed in de­tail at nrscot­ re­search/guides/in­her­it­ing-land-and-build­ings.

Char­ters record­ing changes of own­er­ship may be at the Na­tional Records of Scot­land ( NRS) or lo­cal ar­chives: cat­a­logue.nrscot­ scan­cat­a­logue/wel­come.aspx. Prop­erty own­er­ship was also recorded in Reg­is­ters of Sasines from 1599 ( nrscot­­search/guides/ sasines). Paul Hol­ly­wood’s crofter an­ces­tors were iden­ti­fied in es­tate records. Find out more about us­ing es­tate records at nrscot­ re­search/guides/es­tate-records. An­nual Val­u­a­tion Rolls, com­piled from 1855 on­wards, de­scribe prop­er­ties, their own­ers, oc­cu­pants, ten­ants and rental value. Ten-yearly records from 1865-1915 and for 1920 and 1925 can be searched on Scot­land­sPeo­ple.

More in­dexes can also be ac­cessed via the Scot­tish Ge­neal­ogy So­ci­ety at scots­ge­neal­ Re­sources.aspx.
