    Dictionary of National Biography

    The first edition was published in 63 volumes from 1885 through 1900 in London by Smith, Elder, and Co. (In the US, Macmillan also published many of the volumes in conjunction with Smith, Elder. Various supplements, errata volumes, and indexes were published in the years to follow, prior to the second edition.

    I have started to work through these volumes to extract the Scottish Biographies. I am then adding them to the name entries in the "Scottish Nation".

    This publication is a great resource for anyone doing genealogy but also just to learn about these amazing men and women.

    I have created a page for the first edition of this publication with links to download them and have marked the range of names in each volume so you'll know which one you need to download for a particular name.

    Re: Dictionary of National Biography

    I've been working on these volumes and mostly adding a pdf of the name to the appropriate page within the Scottish Nation publication. I'm now mostly completed the A & B names and if you go to the name in the Scottish Nation at http://www.electricscotland.com/history/nation/ you'll find a link at the foot of the page to the pdf file.
