For family historians, discovering a link to an ancestor is brilliant. At our Library and Archives, many more people are making these discoveries. We are the National Family History Centre for the UK. Our collections contain amazing items steeped in the UK's rich and diverse cultural heritage. Photos, maps and documents relate to over 44,000 surnames - yours is probably included. Many documents are originals and some date back to the 15th century.

You can come in and browse, asking the staff and volunteers for help when you need it. Or book a place on a free Saturday tour. Many of our Wednesday talks are free. Join us for a walk or a visit to other heritage places in London.

We have online databases, research facilities for academics and for students, especially social and local historians. There is wheelchair access to public areas and induction loops in our lecture room.
