BUT you can not view on Scotlandspeople births within the last 100 years but it would give you the info to apply for a birth cert if that recent

Depending on the date, familysearch also have baptisms and births upto 1875 for some areas - can help to save credits on scotlandspeople to look there first.

Civil registration started in 1855 in Scotland and birth certs give more info than English/Welsh ones - they have the date and place of parents' marriage and marriage certs give names of mothers as well as fathers.
