      The Scottish Way of Birth and Death project at the Centre for the History of
      Medicine, University of Glasgow, has launched its website on the history of
      civil registration in Scotland. The site deals with numerous issues
      connected with civil registration between 1854 and 1939, including births,
      deaths, marriages, divorce, health and disease, compulsory vaccination, the
      census, national registration in wartime, and many other issues. It also
      describes the individuals who set up the civil registration system, and the
      problems of registering the Scottish people. The site is intended for
      general interest, but also includes research pages with links to work by the
      authors, both published and unpublished, a guide to the records of the
      Registrar General for Scotland, and a substantial bibliography. We hope
      that it will be of use to all those interested in the social history of
      Scotland in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The site is
      located on http://www.gla.ac.uk/departments/scottishwayofbirthanddeath/
