Scottish Documents is the e-commerce site of the Scottish Archive Network (SCAN) and the National Archives of Scotland (NAS). It was launched in July 2003 as the Internet arm of a massive digital access and preservation project. Between July 2003 and August 2005 it provided free access to an index of over 520,000 Scottish wills and testaments dating from 1500 to 1901 and offered a low-cost digital copy ordering service. The Scottish wills and testaments service has now transferred to the ScotlandsPeople website. for more click here
