Our collections

Family Trees

Here you can see digital images of a selection of hand-crafted historical Family Trees which have been scanned, indexed and then uploaded to our new Family Tree explorer application called TreeSearch™ - made possible with Art Fund support.

We are making a small selection of these Family Trees available to our members and the public at this stage. Over the next six to twelve months, we will be loading the whole collection of over 20,000 images with indexes, containing over a million names, and those will all be available to our members.

Please note that this initial launch of TreeSearch™ is being made available to test it within a live environment. It is fully functional, but is also still being developed. We welcome feedback on any aspect of it, especially the look and feel, functionality and also accessibility across different devices.
