Coronavirus update

We’re pleased to welcome pre-booked researchers and volunteers.   Please see details of our new arrangements on our Preparing to Visit page.

You will need to book your documents in advance.

Gloucestershire Family History Society will re-open in September for pre-booked visits.

If you're not able to make it in, have a look at Gloucestershire Heritage Hub for ideas and links to help you #ExploreYourArchiveAtHome.

Access to Gloucestershire resources on Ancestry for free

While Gloucestershire Libraries and Gloucestershire Family History Society’s research rooms are closed to the public during the Covid-19 pandemic, customers have been unable to access digitised copies of Gloucestershire records free of charge. We’ve been working with Ancestry and can now provide free access to Gloucestershire’s digitised resources until they can welcome you back. Please use this link to access them.

Great Gloucestershire Gardens

This exhibition is about gardens and gardening throughout Gloucestershire – from those at large estates to our own garden at the Heritage Hub.  It covers garden design, local plants, the purposes of gardening and information about the Hub Garden and its history.

This is a virtual exhibition on Prezi. To read about a topic, click on its name. To zoom in on an image, click on it or use the scroll bar on your mouse to zoom in further. If you are unable to load the exhibition, please try doing so on a different internet browser.

Hopefully this exhibition will allow you to learn a little more about Gloucestershire's gardens from the comfort of your own home!
