Diane Baptie

Scottish Genealogical and Historical Researcher

I specialize in searching records in the Historical Search Room, part of the National Records of Scotland (NRS) in Edinburgh, an amalgamation of the National Archives of Scotland and the ScotlandsPeople centre which took place in April 2011. I cover records for the whole of Scotland.

If you are interested in family, local or general history, you might be interested to know that there are many indexed and unindexed records in this archive which could:

  • supply more information about a person or subject
  • prove or disprove a fact or family story
  • verify or correct a printed or online source
  • help to get you past that brick wall

I am also experienced in searching earlier Scottish records and can provide you with transcriptions, translations or summaries of testaments (wills), sasines (records of property), deeds and many more

I also undertake research in the Manuscripts Collections in the National Library of Scotland (NLS)

I am always happy to give advice as to the feasibility of finding an answer to your enquiry or to answer any questions you might have

If you would like me to do a specific or general search, I look forward to hearing from you
