Archives unite for one-stop genealogy shop

Anonymous Patron writes Archives unite for one-stop genealogy shop: Three of Scotland’s largest archives will join together to create the world’s first one-stop personal history centre to meet the growing interest in family trees.
Last week the family records website Scotland’s People, the National Archives of Scotland and the Court of the Lord Lyon (which deals with Scottish heraldry and coats of arms) began to join millions of records in one digital archive.

The three organisations have also pledged to establish a new walk-in campus by 2006 for their Scottish Family History service, which will help tourists and Scots alike find out more about their pasts.”
