Local and Family History
Our libraries are a treasure trove of information about local and family history, and there is no better place for you to begin your research.
Many of our local and family history materials are unique (and sometimes irreplaceable), so you will need to use most of our physical resources at the library.
We also have access to some great online resources, including a subscription to Ancestry and Find My Past, which means you don’t need to pay for your own subscription.
In addition to the local and family history resources available at Your Library, you could also take a look at what is available from Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Archive Service and the William Salt Library in Stafford.
If you’re just getting started, here are some beginner’s guides to help you.
