Catalogues and indexes

Each collection of records held by the National Archives of Scotland (NAS) has a catalogue or index to help you find the right material whether it’s a file or a single document.

* Catalogues are lists of archives according to where they came from and when they were created (their provenance). The catalogues have an alpha-numeric reference system, for example HD4/5.
* Indexes by surname, placename or topic are sometimes made of certain types of record to allow you to find individual documents easily.
