Cornwall Archive Network

Cornwall Archive Network members can be found throughout Cornwall and on the Isles of Scilly.

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

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.
