The NAS and GROS are dead - long live the NRS!

Today the new National Records of Scotland has come into existence, the result of a merger between the National Archives of Scotland (previously the Scottish Records Office) and the General Register Office for Scotland.

The following has been posted on the NAS website:

From 1 April 2011, the National Archives of Scotland merged with the General Register Office for Scotland to become the National Records of Scotland (NRS). This website will remain active until it is replaced in due course by a new website for NRS

There is no timescale as to when the new website might kick in, but undoubtedly when it does we will have to re-bookmark certain sites such as the NAS and NRAS catalogues, and various records guides, so keep an eye out here for news of the new site when it arrives. For the moment though, stick with www.nas.gov.uk and www.gro-scotland.gov.uk !
