Coronavirus update

Gloucestershire County Council are closing Gloucestershire Archives @ the Heritage Hub from Monday 23 March until further notice, due to the current issues relating to Covid-19. 

Gloucestershire Family History Society @ the Heritage Hub has also closed their service until further notice. 

Every effort will be made to continue offering essential services such as access to records for legal reasons.  Similarly, the Registration Service will continue to run a copy certificates service from the site. 

Look out for updates from the archives on social media and online.  If you have a few minutes you might like to #ExploreYourArchiveAtHome.  You can search our collections online or browse or contribute to our online mapping resource Know Your Place

We look forward to welcoming back our customers, volunteers, partners and friends in due course. 

Project records

Gloucestershire Archives offers specialist advice to groups in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire to help you create, organise, and preserve your project records so that they can be enjoyed now and in the future

Are you gathering oral or written memories from your community, or collecting and copying old photographs and documents about where you live? Perhaps you want to create a community website and encourage people to add to it?

We have been involved in supporting many local projects and can share our experience with you. You can also deposit or donate your project records to Gloucestershire Archives for safe-keeping. Our aim is to preserve archive collections permanently and make sure that they are accessible for future generations. Please Contact us for more details

There's lots of other useful advice online about how to go about recording memories, using digital technology and developing community heritage websites (see the links to the right). Why not dip into one of our partnership projects, Gloucester Rugby Heritage, to see what we have been doing?
