If you enjoy searching for yourself at Shropshire Archives but simply need a bit more guidance on where to look next, then you can book an advice surgery with our experienced researcher.We offer one-to-one sessions with our experienced researcher at Shropshire Archives.
We will be able to explain what you will find in different records, and suggest avenues of research that you might not have considered before.
This could be just what you want if……
- you have already done family history research using certificates and parish registers and would like to know what else you could look at
- you would like advice to get you started on your house history
Cost: £14 for half an hour
Location: Search Room at Shropshire Archives
Time: by prior arrangement with our researcher (normally 10am on a Wednesday or Thursday)
What to do next?
Please tell us what sort of research you have already done or what sources you have already used.
For a house history, please let us know the approximate age and location of the property.
Our researcher can then prepare for your visit, and if you let us know when you would prefer to visit we will get back to you two weeks in advance to confirm whether this date is available.
You will need to pay at our reception desk in advance of your session. You can do this by credit card, cheque or cash.
