Our Help Centre contains much local information, including several local graveyard surveys (listed here), censuses, directories, information on local war memorials, books and historic maps. We have a large number of books, CD's and microfiches of local interest — in fact, we hold a wide variety of records, both physical and digital.
Most of our resources relate to Suffolk
— maybe half to the Alde Valley (see map) —
so we believe our archive is a unique resource
that should be widely available.
Our full Index is downloadable
from the link at the top of our Downloads page —
as is our «Acquired recently» list (see options menu, left),
which is often summarised in our Members' Newsletter.
The Index is an Excel-type spreadsheet, to simplify maintenance and searches. Each physical resource (book, CD, map, whatever) usually carries a sticky PROPERTY-OF label marked with a structured nine-character Reference-id (in Column G), whilst computer filenames are prefixed with their Ref-ID too.
To read «How to use our Index», see the menu options, left.
☞ If you identify any items of interest, please
feel free to arrange a Help Centre session to view them in person.
However, if you are further afield or are seeking information
about, or help with, your local family history matters,
you are welcome to visit our Facebook page
(to which there is a link at the foot of every webpage).
☞ If you have any observations on the Index's content or
production, please email either or both of us.
