Our presence at Shropshire Archives

Volunteers from among members of the Society can be found at the help desk within Shropshire Archives on Wednesday and Thursday mornings between 10am-1pm and the first Saturday of each month, also from 10am-1pm. If more volunteers come forward, it might be possible to have the desk manned on a Friday as well, to tie in with the opening days of the Archives.

Our volunteers can offer help for those new to Family History to make a start and assistance is also available in the use of the many sources of information e.g. computers, microfilm/fiche, census indexes, parish registers etc.

Whilst there is no charge for the assistance given by our volunteers, donations are welcome and visitors are encouraged to become members of our Society so that ongoing access to information that may help with research will be available.
