Archive Collections

​The City Archives are housed in the Mitchell Library and include the official records of various local authorities as well as a large number of private archive collections.

The largest single collection is the records of the city of Glasgow itself, which includes records from the modern City Council and its predecessors. 

Our Archives leaflet gives further information on the wonderful documentary heritage of Glasgow over eight centuries.

If you're looking to research your family history take a look at our new, dedicated Glasgow family history website, a one stop shop for all your ancestry research.
