Other Sources in The National Archives

The National Archives contains a wealth of information for family historians. Many of the records of most genealogical value are described in Tracing Your Ancestors in the Public Record Office, Dictionary of Genealogical Sources in the Public Record Office, PRO Handbooks and Research Guides, and the Records Information research guides. You are well advised to read these before embarking on research, because they tell you which The National Archives series to look for, what periods the records cover, and highlight the sources most likely to be of help to you. All the research guides are available online at.
