Diane Baptie

Researcher in Archives

I specialize in researching in the Historical Search Room at the National Records of Scotland (NRS) in Edinburgh and am experienced in searching records from the 16th century onwards

I also research in the Special Collections Department Reading Room at the National Library of Scotland (NLS)

I have undertaken research on a variety of subjects for academics, PhD students, authors, institutions and local historians. Many of my clients have been people who are looking for more information about their families

I can search records which could:

  • reveal more details about a person, place or subject
  • verify or correct a printed or online source
  • assist in filling gaps or getting further back
  • prove or disprove a fact or family story

Perhaps you have visited the Historical Search Room, but did not have time to complete your search and would like to continue it. Could I help you with this?

Have you taken a photograph or photocopy of a document there or downloaded a will from the ScotlandsPeople site which you have found difficult to read?  I could transcribe or summarize it for you

I am always willing to answer any questions you might have.
