FindMyPast Adds Transcription of 1891 Census for Scotland

Word from FindMyPast this morning that they have added the transcriptions of the 1891 Scottish census records to their collection. The word is that the 1901 will be available on FindMyPast shortly. While the actual images are not available on FindMyPast, the transcriptions really are very good and far better than any other transcription service (including Ancestry). The information in the transcriptions includes all of the vital information needed to locate your ancestors and to learn more about their whereabouts, occupations, marital status, age, year and place of birth as well as their family composition.

You do not need a subscription to access these records. They are also available on a pay-per-view basis. Each view will cost you 5 credits. 60 credits can be purchased for £9.95 ($15.75 CDN/USD). These are good for 90 days and will allow you 12 transcription views.
