Moray Heritage Centre

Moray Heritage Centre
Tracing your roots in Moray

The Local Heritage Centre holds a wealth of information for anyone seeking to find out more about their family history in Moray.

For family history research the ideal starting point is your own family including relatives and older friends who may all be able to provide useful information. Documents such as birth, marriage and death certificates, school and army records, photographs, scrapbooks, family bibles etc can help to build a fuller picture of your family?s history.

From 1 January 1855 all births, marriages and deaths had to be registered. All these certificates usually give the names of the parents. So, for example, if you knew one of these dates for a grandparent, the certificate from the local registrar?s office will give the names of the great-grandparents. For records prior to 1855 researchers have to rely on church registers of baptisms, marriage and burials, wills, censuses, gravestone inscriptions and other miscellaneous records. These and other resources listed below are held at Old East End Primary School in Elgin and can prove invaluable if you want to find out more about your roots in Moray. The facility is run by trained staff with many years experience and an unrivalled expertise on Moray.

If your roots are in Moray and you have some basic facts to build on, you can employ the resources of The Moray Council?s Local Heritage Centre to help trace your family tree.

The Local Heritage Service at holds a comprehensive collection of unique records. These can make the difference between success and failure in your search.
