Guidance for people interested in conducting genealogical and historical research about their ancestors in Scotland is provided on the website ancestralscotland.com, which has a link from the main visitscotland.com website. The websites of the General Register Office for Scotland and the National Archives of Scotland provide access to the main genealogical sources (gro-scotland.gov.uk and nas.gov.uk). These two departments and the Court of the Lord Lyon are working to integrate their services and provide a single authoritative genealogical portal.
