Where to start

A guide to the archives

This guide is a good starting point for anyone with an interest in the history of the local area or family and social historians. It will give you an overview of the types of records we hold.

The records are listed according to their administrative origin rather than according to subject. New collections are continually received so may not be listed in this publication, which was produced in 1996.
