Please note that, due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic on staffing, we are currently only able to offer microfilmed copies of probate records. Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances, we are unable to offer our searching, translation or transcription services at this time.
If you are unable to visit the Borthwick Institute in person we can still assist you with your research.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your research with a member of our team - we will be very happy to advise you further.
Our research service is designed for people who can't visit, but who have questions they would like answering using our archive material, or for people who have visited but didn't have time to complete their research.
Services include searching, and document transcription and translation.
