Coronavirus update

We're pleased to announce that from the 4th August Gloucestershire Archives will re-open to the public.  We've had to make some changes to the way we work, and you can see more details about our new arrangements on our Covid recovery page.

You will need to book your documents in advance.

At the moment Gloucestershire Family History Society remains closed.

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.

Please be aware that the Heritage Hub will close at 1.30 on Friday 15th November. This is so that its volunteers and staff can celebrate receiving the 2019 National Archives and the Archives and Records Association (ARA) Volunteering Award, which will be presented by Karl Magee, the Chair of ARA.

You can find out more about why Gloucestershire Archives has won this award by following this link.

The Archives will be open as normal from 9am until 1.30pm, so you can still pre-order documents to view during that time.  The Gloucestershire Family History Society Centre will be open from 10am until 1.30pm.
