Nottinghamshire Archives houses archives for the county of Nottinghamshire, the city of Nottingham, the diocese of Southwell & Nottingham, and other local bodies, families and individuals.

Archives are original documents produced by official bodies, societies and individuals that are no longer in current use. The documents range from the 12th to the 21st centuries. They include official and privately-owned archives. Most archives are unique and have to be housed in secure conditions and handled with care. Many archives have been copied onto microfiche in order to save wear and tear on the originals.

An online catalogue is available on our web site.

Archives can be used for: tracing your family history; discovering the history of your village or town; discovering the history of your house; school and college projects; checking certain legal rights, for example, rights of way; and obtaining official certified copies of many records.
