Earby & District Local History Society have a great deal of information in the archives about local families and their history which we hope you can utilise in your research.  

If you have any genealogy research queries or brick walls relating to Earby and District we are happy to put them on this page for others to read and maybe help with. 


If you are local and researching your family history you are welcome to visit the archives by prior arrangement.  Society staff will find the information in the archives for you and then let you sort through it at the archives in your own time.  Anyone too far away to visit can contact us and we will do a search of the archives for you.


There is an index of family history related items that are held in the archive on the indexes page
