Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - NEWS -

The archive ser­vices of Cam­bridgeshire and Hunt­ing­don­shire both closed on 3 De­cem­ber 2018.

The two ser­vices op­er­ate jointly, and staff are now work­ing on clean­ing and pack­ag­ing Cam­bridgeshire Archives doc­u­ments be­fore a move to a new fa­cil­ity in Ely, which is due to open in au­tumn 2019.

Hunt­ing­don­shire Archives will re­main in its cur­rent lo­ca­tion at Hunt­ing­don Li­brary, and re­open on 3 June 2019.

Dur­ing the clo­sure pe­riod, both archives will open one day a month by ap­point­ment only. Only records listed un­der the Pub­lic Records Acts are avail­able at Cam­bridgeshire. How­ever, all of Hunt­ing­don­shire Archives’ records are avail­able thanks to fund­ing from Hunt­ing­don­shire Lo­cal His­tory So­ci­ety.

In ad­di­tion, tran­scripts of Hunt­ing­don­shire’s par­ish reg­is­ters are avail­able by ap­point­ment only at the Nor­ris Mu­seum in St Ives, while the Cam­bridgeshire par­ish reg­is­ter tran­scripts and mi­cro­films of pro­bate records are avail­able at Cam­bridge Cen­tral Li­brary.
