The valuation rolls now span 80 years from 1855 to 1935 and are searchable through nearly 28 million index entries. In the first rolls of 1855 there are just over 1 million entries, and in 1930 there were 2.5 million names. Between 1855 and 1930 Scotland’s population grew from over 3 million to 4.8 million.

A window into Scotland in 1935

Tim Ellis, Registrar General and Keeper of the Records of Scotland, said: "We're delighted to be adding to the huge resources of ScotlandsPeople. The latest year opens a window into Scotland in 1935, giving an intriguing glimpse into life at the time. It is part of our commitment at National Records of Scotland to continue improving public access to the records researchers want."

Among the newly-released records are entries relating to some of Scotland's well-known authors, including Compton Mackenzie, Neil Gunn, Jospehine Tey, Nan Shepherd and Annie S. Swan.
