The Parliamentary Archives

As Olivia discovered when she visited to find out more about Richard Campbell Bazett, the Parliamentary Archives holds records of divorces obtained by Act of Parliament between 1670 and 1857. The archive is free to visit and holds other records useful to family historians including naturalisation records, petitions to Parliament and Returns of Roman Catholics. The archive is open Mondays to Fridays from 10am to 4pm but you need to make an appointment at least two days before you intend to visit. Click here to find out more.
 

National Archives of India

For those hunting information on relatives with connections to India, the National Archives of India, founded in 1891, are an invaluable source of information.
