Local and Family History
We have changed our name! We hope the new title of our unique department reflects our collections of local published material but also that it suggests to our regular customers and visitors that we have the resources and expertise to help you get started in finding your family, digging into the past and creating your own family tree.
Your Enquiries and Research
We are happy to help you with queries and enquiries and encourage you to visit us if you can to take advantage of our collections and resources. However, if this proves difficult we do offer a personal service and charge £29 for an hours worth of research into your enquiries.
You can contact us by e-mail, telephone, post or fax.
Local and Family History in other PKC Libraries
Several of our larger libraries have limited collections of duplicate local studies books, maps and newspapers. Please contact the appropriate library direct for further details (see Your local library).
