Details of French royal post revolution refugees and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's family tree have been made available online for the first time, First Minister Alex Salmond announced today. Hundreds of volumes of births and baptisms from the Scottish Catholic Archives have been added to the ScotlandsPeople website. The documents reveal that Conan Doyle, who never used his baptismal middle name, Ignatius, was born and brought up Catholic at Picardy Place in  Edinburgh, though he later renounced religion. The records date from 1703 to 1908 and cover Catholic congregations across Scotland and in the armed forces and throw important light on the development of Catholic communities in areas such as Barra and South Uist. The two year project adds an extra 143,000 pages and two million new names to the 65 million already on the database. .Picture 6 October 2009: Universal News and Sport (Scotland).All pictures must be credited to  www.universalnewsandsport.com.(0ffice) 0844 884 51 22.
