North Lanarkshire is one of 32 council areas of Scotland. It borders onto the northeast of the City of Glasgow and contains much of Glasgow's suburbs and commuter towns and villages. It also borders East Dunbartonshire, Falkirk, Stirling, South Lanarkshire and West Lothian. The council covers parts of the traditional counties of Dunbartonshire, Lanarkshire and Stirlingshire.
Little information of interest to genealogists and family historians will be found under this heading as it is such a modern foundation. Refer to Lanarkshire to find research tips and a list of parishes and towns that today are found in North Lanarkshire.
