A treasure trove of local history - how to use your local record office


By Jacqui Halewood, published 1st January 2000

In her article in Primary History No 21, Jayne Woodhouse highlighted that the study of history needn’t be all about national events. Essentially it is a series of stories, often about ordinary people and their ordinary lives, which can be built up from the evidence available in archives and artefacts. So where do you find this evidence? How do you get access to the original source material to use in the classroom? record offices, or archives services, contain a wealth of original written source material, which can be used to tell these stories.
