Family history in South Yorkshire research guide

The 4 archive and local studies services in South Yorkshire (Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield) have worked together to compile a single guide to the main genealogical material in their offices and elsewhere.

This guide is a supplement to more detailed information available on their  websites.

Download the guide, it tells you what genealogical sources are available and where they are to be found.

The key genealogical resources are listed in church, chapel and cemetery registers, trade directories and probate records.

More information than ever before is being made available online, not only by ourselves but also by genealogical websites such as, FindMyPast and Genes Reunited, etc.
