Local Studies and Family History at Newcastle Libraries

Established in 1884, Newcastle Libraries hold the largest collection of local and family history material in the North East. They also collect current local material and index articles from newspapers about local people, places and events. Everyone is welcome to visit the archive. As many items are rare or irreplaceable most of the collection is not on public display, however staff are on hand to retrieve items from the collection. Visit the Local Studies and Family History webpage.
