Local and Family History

In your local library or museum you will find a wealth of material including books and pamphlets, old photographs, prints, newspaper cuttings, census returns, maps, trade and street directories. All libraries have computers linked to the internet, which can be used to explore local resources.


If you want original documents a visit to Hampshire Record Office in Winchester is necessary. The collections tell the story of Hampshire and its people from the early Middle Ages to the present. They include minute books, letters, diaries, accounts, title deeds, maps, rints and drawings, film, audio tape and digital files.


The staff can help you whether you are tracing your ancestors, the history of your house, working on a school project, writing an academic dissertation or simply if you are interested in your local area.
