A Warm Welcome from Wharf Road

With the opening of our new home and other exciting news on the horizon, we’ve decided that 2024 will be the Year of the Genealogist!

The opening of our home at Wharf Road is an announcement many people have been eagerly awaiting, and we really appreciate the patience and support that the genealogy community has shown us. You are very much part of our own history. 

From Wednesday 13th to Friday 22nd December, we’ll be hosting an exclusive Member-Only opening. Members, please keep an eye on your emails for your invitation. 

If you aren’t a Member yet, you can visit us from Wednesday 3rd January 2024 when our doors will be open to all. Created by genealogists, for genealogists, we are the perfect place to come whether you are new to researching your family history or a seasoned expert. For full opening hours and visiting guides please see here

Easily accessible from a variety of tube stations and bus routes, our home at 40 Wharf Road is in the heart of the historic canal landscape of North London. Visit us to enjoy our new Research Hub, encompassing our archive, library, and computers with access to a wide range of genealogical sites. An established FamilySearch Affiliate Library, our Research Hub offers a fantastic friendly space for exploring your family history in the company of fellow genealogists and our expert staff. 

We look forward to sharing further announcements and updates with you as we look ahead to 2024. 


Best wishes
