Perthshire is a county in Scotland. The Perthshire Public record Office comprises documents of different types dating as far back as the 18th Century. These documents are brought or donated to the records office by a wide range of individuals, organisations, institutions, parishes and also churches.
They are all well preserved for public consultation by individuals, groups and especially for research purposes. It is a good initiative which focuses on keeping the people of the County informed of their past, some people consult the archives to trace their family and ancestors which is quite helpful. All of these are available in both printed form as well as electronically on the website. However, some of the documents available at the records office especially records of personal names are not directly open to public access except by permission from the officers.
