NLI sources

The NLI holds a wealth of information that can be used to trace the history of a family. The main record sources include Catholic parish registers, property records such as estate papers and maps, newspapers, directories and heraldic records. We also hold published family histories and local history society publications, and provide free on-site access to a number of useful subscription websites.

Further information on all of these sources is available in our information booklet Family History Research_2018  Family History Research booklet_2018.pdf (3.99 MB, Adobe PDF).
