Cornwall Archive Network

The Cornwall Archive Network is made up of about 40 community archives and active history groups throughout Cornwall preserving documents and images and using them for research and displays for the public. There are some CAN members who are museums that also hold archives. Some museums can be found at Mid-Cornwall Museum Group and via www.museumsincornwall.org.uk

Kresen Kernow opened in September 2019, with great excitement with many throughout Cornwall being able to get back to researching, in this wonderful newly restored and repurposed building.

List of those Cornish archives who are members of CAN who have a Facebook page along with the short name where they have one. Many have websites.
