Scottish Catholic Archives

Scottish Catholic Archives

The Scottish Catholic Archives preserves, selects and makes available the archives of the Catholic Church in Scotland and abroad. Holding over 800 years of documentary evidence of the Catholic Church in Scotland and the wider world, the Scottish Catholic Archives is a major resource for understanding Scottish and European history. From letters of Mary, Queen of Scots; baptismal records for individuals such as Arthur Conan Doyle; and papers relating to Oscar Wilde, the collections held relate to five continents and are written in at least 12 languages.

Our holdings include parish registers and other sources which provide valuable family history and genealogical information. Readers are welcome to consult our resources at our research centre, Columba House in Edinburgh.
