UK National Archives

For those with British roots, this is a great site.

The Guides are research guides. Just type in anything or anywhere you're interested in and you'll be amazed at all the help there is.

Discovery is their online catalogue. Again very helpful. Just take a few minutes and browse the page.

Online collections is exactly that, but only 5% of their records has been digitized, so it's a crap shoot as to what you'll find. It should also remind us that we should not forgot about hands-on research [yourself or hire a local professional]. The same is true of our archives in any part of Canada. Only a tiny percent is online.

Anyway the UK archives site is great. Enjoy!!
