Site search

This part of the website tells you how to search within the National Archives of Scotland (NAS) website and how to search separate catalogues and indexes in the NAS. The site search device will only search text in this website's html pages. This will be useful when searching for information about issues such as Freedom of Information, preservation, copyright etc. It will be of limited use if you wish to carry out historical or genealogical research - for this you should visit our Doing research section.  

NAS online catalogue and other indexes and catalogues

Each collection of records held by the National Archives of Scotland (NAS) has a catalogue or index to help you find the right material whether it's a file or a single document. A catalogue lists archives according to where it came from and when it was created (its provenance) and can list individual documents or files. An index is arranged according to name or topic or type of document and will lead you to a specific document. Some series of records are catalogued or indexed separately. To carry out research using catalogues and indexes to records in the NAS and elsewhere go to the online catalogue pages.
