NOTE from DearMYRTLE: The following was received late last week from our friends at the Federation of Family History Societies. Please address inquiries to ffhs-news@ffhs-lists.org.uk.

Liverpool Record Office

This is located in the Central Library in the City Centre which is about to undergo a £50 million redevelpment. It is understood that the library and record office will close on 31 May for a period of up to 3 years.

The following has been taken from the library website:

“The library will close in Spring 2010 to prepare for the redevelopment work to begin in Autumn 2010. During the redevelopment a smaller public service will operate in the city centre. Services will include lending of books and audio visual material, family history and local studies sources on microfilm and microfiche, a general enquiry service, public computing and printing, popular newspapers and magazines and a small collection of handbooks and directories.

“A satellite service will operate outside the city centre. This will include access to archives and local studies material by appointment with 24 hours notice required. There will also be a telephone and email business and Intellectual Property information service, a Record Office research service and a vocal scores and orchestral parts service.

“The location of the two public services will be announced shortly.”
