1 The Jersey Archive was established in 1993 to collect and preserve records of the States of Jersey, of States Committees and Departments, the Royal Court, HE Lieutenant-Governor, Parishes, Churches, Businesses, Societies and individuals, in fact virtually anything about Island life.

2 The Jersey Archive is committed to making the records as accessible as possible. They have a search facility (OPAC) to assist people in finding the records they are seeking.


3 If you are unable to visit in person they will answer written, e-mail or telephone enquiries about records in their care.

Channel Islands Family History Society

4 The collection of the Channel Islands Family History is available in the reference area of the Jersey Archive. This includes books, family trees and indices of baptisms, marriages, burials and censuses prepared by members of the Society. Volunteers from the Society are regularly on duty to assist visitors researching family history.


5 Documents are catalogued and carefully packed in acid free materials and stored in the correct environmental conditions. Long term preservation and security of records is high priority.

6 Records can be donated or deposited on long term loan, receipts are given. There is no charge for depositing records with the Jersey Archive.

Conservation and restoration

7 The Jersey Archive has a workshop to provide specialised care to maintain the condition of the collection and to repair items that are too fragile to allow use in the Reading Room. Techniques and materials conform to British Standards.
