Recognised by UNESCO, the Jersey Archive is the Island’s national repository holding records on all aspects of Jersey’s history. Researchers can use archive resources to trace their family history, the story of their house or street, and to find out more about the German Occupation of Jersey during the Second World War.

The archive catalogue can be found online and Information leaflets are available on a variety of subjects.

Staff at Jersey Archive can assist with legal and property research enquiries, other advice about preservation, and give talks, tours and education services.
