Archive Services

Preserving the past, serving the present, protecting the future

The West Yorkshire Archive Service collects and looks after the unique documentary heritage of the region and helps members of the public use and enjoy these records.

We collect and preserve the heritage of our region dating from the twelfth century to the present day – over 800 years of local history.

Through our five district offices we can help you:

  • discover your family history
  • learn about your local area
  • care for your collections
