The Common Room / National Archives, Kew - closed until end of May 2020
« on: Thursday 19 March 20 17:10 GMT (UK)  »
As is to be expected, the National Archives has closed its doors to visitors.

However, their website and research guides remain available.  The catalogue is still a useful resource even if we cannot get access either to the records or get them copied.  I recently discovered that a Hampshire ancestor had volunteered to work in Canada during the American wars of Independence to support the Royal Navy ships there.  That was well worth the speculative search in an idle moment........

Happy hunting everyone, and stay well.  :)
