Find Records Online
Emma recommends these three websites for finding information about your Scottish forebears’ education
The site has transcripts of school registers and other records from Lanarkshire, and images of Edinburgh Academy’s registers (1824–1914).
Search an index of School Leaving Certificates (1908–1924) containing about 250,000 entries; images cost £5 (see page 65).
Ancestry has records from schools in Fife, and ‘Perthshire, Scotland, School Registers of Admission and Withdrawals, 1869–1902’.
