The National Archives has a NEW website.
Visit www.nationalarchives.gov.uk to find out more about this exciting new online resource.
As of April 2003, the Public Record Office and the Historical Manuscripts Commisssion joined forces to form The National Archives.
The National Archives is the repository of the national archives for England, Wales and the United Kingdom. It was founded by act of Parliament in 1838 to bring together and preserve the records of central government and the courts of law, and to make them available to all who wish to consult them. The records, beginning with Domesday Book (1086), span an unbroken period from the 11th century to the present.
The National Archives holds many records relating to family history including Military Service and Operational records, Wills (before 1858), Death Duties and records of Non-Conformists. See the Family History Research section of the website.
As well as access to Public Records, the National Archives now offers information about (but not access to) other records such as those held by universities and local archives. This information can be found on the National Register of Archives.
