Thanks, East Riding Archives

Archives, Libraries, Research Add comments

It was a trip I would have to make sooner or later, I had known for about 2 years they had files that I had wanted to get my hands on, and parish registers from the Sculcoates area that needed to be looked at.

With this in mind I arranged a visit to look at the relavant files that I had discovered via The National Archives Website. 

What struck me about the East Riding Archives Centre, is just how nice the place is, not just the multi million pound building, but the staff too!

The Centre, which is a large bright building is just five minutes from the railway station, and has parking out the front, facilities imclude, toilets, storage lockers, cafe and shop, as well as a local studies library, and a special area just for preservation of artefacts. 

Within the archives and Local Studies section are,

Parish Records,

Birth, Marriage and Death lists,


Trade Directories,

And a massive collection of Local History Books.

The archive is made up of,

Parchments, Paper, Rolls, Files, volumes, deeds, letters, diaries, accounts, maps, photographs, videos, tapes and electronic records.

There is a photocopying service available,

Plenty of Microfiche readers,

Free Internet access,

It was a worthy visit, and one which will be made again soon!!
