I'm sure we all enjoy watching "Who Do You Think You Are" and how easy it is to find out if you have Royal Blood or a Criminal Past!

If you have a craving to research your ancestors or to access information about anyone in the past then your first place to contact is the Cheshire Archives and Local Studies, Cheshire Record Office, Duke Street, off Bridge Street, Chester CH1 1RL.
Cheshire Archives and Local Studies collects, protects and promotes interest in and the use of records and printed material relating to the historic county of Cheshire.

They receive many requests for help from such researchers and are able to provide information as part of their service to the public, and you can visit in person by prior arrangement to access the very documents you need.

Their website is here.
They are also contactable via email at cheshirerecordoffice@sharedservices.gov.uk
