The following information is courtesy of Carolynn Glenwood, Western State Chapter of Clan Gregor:
A collection of three search engines(English, Scots and Irish) (www.orgins.net), plus a genealogy-focused search engine to help you trace your roots in the old country. You can access all four sites from the home page or go directly to each.
Origins.Net's Roots (www.scotsorgins.com) trace back to this site: it was launched in 1998 to provide online access to records from the General Register Office for Scotland (GROS). Unfortunately, this connection ended last fall. In its place, Scots Origin now offers a Sighting Service and an improved search of the Church of Latter Day Saints (LDS)International Genealogical Index (IGI). The IGI reportedly includes more than 90% of births and marriages from the old Parishes.
Scots Origins allows you to search the IGI by parish -- not an open option on the LDS' Family-Search Web site (listed above). Once you have a date and a name, you can order a transcription from the old Parish Registers and the Statuary Registers via the Sighting Services. The service takes about 10 days and costs approximently $12.00 per requested record. If researchers cannot find your record, you'll receive a refund for half the fee.
For more information right at your finger tips, may I suggest a subscription to FAMILY TREE MAGAZINE. Six issues for $21.96 (first issue is free to review, 27% savings from the newsstand price).
