Search Teesside Archives catalogues

Restrictions are starting to ease, but you must still remember: Hands. Face. Space. Fresh air. Check the current rules.

You can search our catalogues online through either the dedicated Teesside Archives catalogue or the National Archives Discovery Catalogue.

The Teesside Archives online catalogue includes the British Steel Collection catalogues, and an overview of many of our other collections.

To exclusively search the Teesside Archives catalogues in the Discovery Catalogue, select the 'search other archives' option in the 'held by' section, then type Teesside Archives in the box below.

It's worth checking both catalogues as some records are only available on one. Please note that not all of our collections are fully catalogued, so staff will help you to locate relevant records that aren't yet catalogued.

Please make note of the reference number of any items you'd be interested in viewing, or contact us for further details on the collections.

Researching family history

There are four public PCs at Teesside Archives. These can be used to view digitised records on CD, and also offer free access to Ancestry Library Edition and FindmyPast. Most family history resources such as parish records are accessible on microfilm through Middlesbrough Reference Library, Hartlepool Reference Library, Stockton Reference Library, or Redcar Reference Library.

Many Church of England parish registers for Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland have been digitised as part of the Yorkshire Parish Records Project and are available to view on FindmyPast.

For more information on the availability and location of church records for Teesside please see the guide to Church of England parish registers, Non-Conformist parish registers and Roman Catholic parish registers.

Records available online

Yorkshire Parish Records are available to search and view on FindmyPast. A list is available showing the parishes and covering dates for baptisms, marriages and burials.

School records including admission registers and logbooks from 1870 to 1914 are available to search and view on FindmyPast. A list of schools included in the project is available.

Please note: FindmyPast is a subscription-based website with free access available at Teesside Archives and some local libraries.
