Access to Gloucestershire resources on Ancestry for free

While Gloucestershire Archives, 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 we can welcome you back. Please use this link to access them.

Cross-curricular learning resources for schools

FREE Key Stage 2 and 3 lesson plans and supporting resources

We worked with local schools to develop and publish FREE downloadable lesson plans and supporting resources.  These help students learn about the effects of WW1 on their communities through documents in our collections.

You might also get ideas from our Help with your research into WW1 and Help with recording and sharing your research findings pages.
