Access to Archives
Part of the UK archives network
A2A allows you to search and browse for information about collections of records
(archives) in England and Wales, dating from the eighth century to the present day.
The archives described on A2A are cared for in local record offices and libraries,
universities, museums and national and specialist institutions across England and
Wales, where they are made available to the public.
To find out whether archives are of interest to you, it is necessary to consult
a catalogue or other finding aid. A2A allows you to search across detailed catalogues
from around 400 record repositories in England and Wales beyond The National Archives
at Kew, so you may arrange to see or to obtain copies of genuine historical documents
with just a few clicks of your mouse.
