Family History

If you are doing a family tree, we can offer you plenty of resources and help.

The basic sources for Perthshire and Kinross-shire family history research are listed in our booklet  Keekin for Kin [2Mb]. This also provides information about family history services delivered by other local organisations, together with appropriate contact details.

Local & Family History specialises in local books, pamphlets, historic local newspapers and maps. We also have microfilms containing images from the Old Parochial Registers and the censuses of Perth and Kinross from 1841-1901. If you use the public computers or the Wi-Fi available in Perth and Kinross Libraries you will get free access to the website ancestry.co.uk.
