National Register of Archives for Scotland (NRAS) : The National Register of Archives for Scotland (NRAS) was established by the Scottish Record Office (now the National Records of Scotland) in 1946 to compile a record of papers of historical significance in private hands in Scotland. The principal aims of the NRAS are to locate such papers and to encourage their care so that their loss and destruction may be avoided. The Register now contains over 4,200 surveys of private papers including the records of landed estates, private individuals, businesses, law firms and societies
