Research Facilities

Association for Cornish Heritage has a library of books, journals and magazines that can be accessed for research purposes. Many of these can be accessed at our museum rooms at Newquay Heritage Archive & Museum.

For those interested in researching their family history we are a service point for Kresen Kernow microfiche records that includes many parishes throughout the Mid-Cornwall area. These can be accessed by appointment and we do have volunteer staff who have extensive expertise in family history research to advise you.

For those researching the many aspects of Cornwall's historic and cultural heritage Association for Cornish Heritage are building a database of articles found in books, journals and online articles. Many of these will not necessarily be contained within Cornish related publications. The aim is to provide a link or information where these can be found.

We may have copies of these within our own collection, website, or held as pdf's on our computers. This database aims have a wide cultural range of articles, but will take a considerable amount of time to load and there will always be more to be added.

If you are interested in anything in particular please contact us to enquire and discuss.

The online journals and newsletters are currently those issued by Cornish groups and associations in Australia, New Zealand and London. We hope to be adding more as these become available to share and keep these up to date if available.
