Borthwick Institute for Archives
Our research service is available for people who can't visit us in person but have particular questions they would like answering using our archival material; or who have visited but did not have time to complete their research.
We undertake all sorts of research in our records, including, but not restricted to, family history. Our searching services may include looking in records on your behalf, and limited transcriptions and translations of content. We are unable to undertake lengthy transcriptions and translations at this time.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss your research before applying.
