Ordering Scottish Certificates Transcripts and Photocopies        
Civil Registration of  Scottish births, deaths and marriages began in 1855.  
To obtain a certificate, transcript or photocopy of a birth, marriage or death entry in the register all you will need is to provide some details about your ancestor.  A transcript is an accurately typed copy of the original record. Photocopies are copies of original BMD entries.
Genfindit can also provide transcripts of early Scottish Church baptism and marriage records from 1553.   Transcripts are available for most events to within 18 months of today.

See  What's On Scottish Certifcates for details of information found on Scottish Certificates and transcripts after 1855.  
For transcripts before 1855 the amount of information shown on baptism and marriage records varies. In many cases the information is minimal.  Baptisms usually show both parents names. In some instances only the father's name is shown.   Marriage records usually do not show the parents' names or ages of the bride and groom.
