Records and archives - loans, donations and bequests
The County Record Office collects material which reflects the history of the county of North Yorkshire and is pleased to hear of records remaining in private hands which might be of interest to researchers.
Records considered worthy of permanent preservation can be deposited at the County Record Office for safekeeping and to be made available for study. Records can be acquired by transfer, purchase, gift or long-term loan. Records deposited on long-term loan remain the property of the depositor.
The archives development manager is happy to visit potential depositors to collect such records or to advise on their condition and storage. If you have, or know of, records which might be of interest please contact us for advice or to arrange deposit.
