Content on this site is sparse. The main purpose appears to be to encourage genealogy-related tourism to the Orkney Islands. However, there are several assistive pages on the site, such as:

  • "Find Your Orkney Roots", which provides some information on obtaining vital records
  • "Find Your Name", which provides lists of common names found on several of the individual islands
  • "Famous Orcadians", which provides access to biographical information on notable people in a handful of different categories
