Scottish post office directories update

The Internet Archive now hosts 831 Scottish post office directories on its website at http://archive.org/details/nationallibraryofscotland, a vast increase on the number available on the National Library of Scotland's own portal at http://digital.nls.uk/directories/, where there are just over 700. There are, for example, now Glasgow based directories on the site up to 1919-1920, beyond the 1911 cut off point implemented by the NLS on its own site.

Incidentally, although the NLS has a new portal, if you prefer the old portal, its link is still active at www.nls.uk/family-history/directories/post-office
