Welcome to The Family Records Centre website

The Family Records Centre (FRC) is jointly run by the General Register Office (GRO) and The National Archives.

The FRC provides access to some of the most important sources for family history research in England and Wales, including births, marriages and deaths and census returns. This site will help you to plan your visit to the FRC with information to help you with your research. You can also keep up to date with all the news from the FRC and read the latest edition of our quarterly newsletter the Family Record.

The Family Records Centre hosts a year-round programme of events such as family history talks, lectures and exhibitions. We also hold regular family history surgeries, computer skills tutorials and other training events. To find out about these activities and much more, visit the FRC Extra section of this website.
