The Archives Catalogue
The East Riding Archives Catalogue is an online database of items held in our archives and local studies collections. It does not show the item, but describes what it is and provides the finding number needed to request to view it. It also gives the date, and for books, shows author and publication date. To view the originals, you need to visit the archives.
The catalogue is a searchable database. You can do a simple search by keyword, or filter specific items with an advanced search.
When you find an item you would like to view, you can request to view it in the Research Room at East Riding Archives. Use the book a seat form to book a free seat and reserve the item in advance and our staff will have it ready for when you arrive.View catalogue
Some East Riding Archives parish registers can be found on the Find My Past website. While you normally would have to pay a subscription for using FindMyPast, it is free to access on the computers in the research room at the Treasure House, Beverley, or at East Riding Libraries.Visit FindMyPast
