* Please note that if you wish to use documents on Saturday afternoon it is strongly recommended to pre-order these before 1 pm the same Saturday. This is due to our having fewer staff working Saturday afternoons. Anyone ordering documents after 1 pm does so at their own risk and should be aware that we cannot guarantee to produce them on the same day. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
***Please note our public area has recently undergone a reorganisation. If you would like to visit us to view microfiche or microfilm (parish registers and local newspapers) or to use a people’s network computer,
Welcome to the website of the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre, your passport to the past.
Wiltshire and Swindon has a rich and diverse heritage. The History Centre brings together the archaeology, archive, buildings record, conservation, and museum advisory services together with the county local studies library to create a centre whose sum is much more than that of its parts.
If you are researching your ancestors or trying to find out more about a town or parish in Wiltshire or Swindon, or if you want professional advice and guidance on other heritage issues, we are the ideal place to contact or visit.
