This useful collection is now fully searchable and includes details on Edinburgh’s apprentices, their fathers and masters, as far back as the 1500s.
Apprenticeship records reveal details about your ancestors’ lives and careers you won’t find elsewhere. Plus, they often date way back. Butcher, baker, candlestick maker? Endless stories are waiting to be discovered in Findmypast’s apprentice collections.
We’ve added thousands of new records from The National Archives and the General Register Office. Discover amazing stories of births at sea, fallen seamen and more.
This vast resource also features members of the British Armed Forces who were serving overseas. Within the entire collection, you can uncover birth, baptism, marriage, banns, death and burial records.
