    Don’t forget to visit our History Centre branch

    • 5th December 2011

    There are still plenty of opportunities for users to carry out research at our History Centre. It’s a great place to visit for anyone starting out on their family or local history research. Here’s a bit more information:

    At the History Centre in Trinity Street, Worcester, we hold microfilm copies of the most popular sources for research, including parish registers, wills and newspapers. We also have an extensive local studies collection (you can search the library catalogue here), as well as internet access that includes free access to Ancestry.

    You can view a Worcestershire Marriage Index (compiled by members of the Birmingham and Midland Society for Genealogy and Heraldry) that covers the years 1660-1837, as well as gain access to an index of Worcestershire Baptisms compiled by the Malvern Family History Society that covers 1750-1839.

     Our friendly and helpful staff will be happy to help you start off on your research.

    We are open Monday to Saturday (you can check our Opening Hours here).

    We look forward to seeing you soon!
