Family & Local History Alphabet
The links on the left are designed to provide some background information and useful addresses on a variety of topics of interest to family and local historians. They also provide information about many of the more important types of records available at Doncaster Archives for research into these subjects.
If you would like information about any aspect of archives not mentioned here, or would like to know more about the topics to be found on these webpages, please contact Doncaster Archives using the details on the right of this page.
If you intend to visit Doncaster Archives, our reading room is open as follows:
The archival collections, previously on-site at the Archives, have gone into storage outside of the Doncaster borough and as such are inaccessible. Although we cannot carry out any enquiry work from the archives records we can offer advice and assistance with your general enquiries.
You can get in touch with Doncaster Archives by email on firstname.lastname@example.org for information and updates on the archives service and our relocating progress; we’ll do our best to get back to you as quickly as possible.
Tuesday to Thursday 10am- 4pm
We are closed on Saturdays and public holidays.
Please give us advanced notice of your visit, so that we can guarantee you a seat, as the reading room can get very busy on some days. If you are not a member of Doncaster Libraries we will need to issue you with a library card on your first visit, so please bring some official document (a driving licence or CARN ticket, for example) that includes your name and address.
