Advice and guides on sources
Visiting Shropshire Archives
Volunteers from the Shrophsire Family History Society have a help-desk between 10am and 1pm each day that we are open. So if you are beginning to trace your family history or want a bit of extra help using Shropshire Archives, it’s worth visiting in the morning.
If you aren’t able to visit in person, then we offer different levels of research to suit your needs.
