How on earth do I research the Surname "Scott" in Scotland?

Question by deibo29

My maternal great-grandparents emigrated to New Zealand, via Melbourne - where they were married in the Scots Church ... but I can't trace them beyond there. Any suggestions how to find a specific Scott in Scotland would be appreciated.

Go slow select what you want to go back to ( write down the number ) Better allow a lot of time . Good hunting - Regards - edmondsallan

That's a tough one, almost as hard as 'badger' trying to find Smith in Scotland. The only way I see it is if you could get hold of the immigration records from Scotland to Melbourne then you will find in those the place of origin and date of birth and often place of birth.
