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.
