The National Archives, Kew: changes to Reading Rooms

The National Archives (TNA) in Kew, London, has advised that some work will be carried out in its Reading Rooms next week. Both the Research and Enquiries areas may be affected, but services to visitors should run as normal. Any disruption to researchers is likely to be minimal.

Repurposing of the space follows the closure of the London Family History Centre at TNA. While the Centre will have gone, the TNA has become a FamilySearch Affiliate Library, allowing researchers with a free FamilySearch account to access all digitised records on the FamilySearch database. They will be able to do this by using the PCs in the reading rooms.

The remodelling of the areas should be completed by Friday 29 March.
