About the Archives

Lincolnshire Archives was established as a county service in 1948 with the bringing together of the records collected by the Lindsey, Kesteven and Holland County Councils, and the Lincoln Diocesan Record Office. The Archives service was known as the Lincolnshire Archives Committee.

The service is now part of Lincolnshire County Council’s Public Health directorate and is based in modern offices in St Rumbold Street, Lincoln.

Lincolnshire Archives offers a public search room where members of the public are welcome to consult original archives, microfilm resources and library material relating to the county of Lincolnshire and its connections in other parts of the UK and overseas.

People who might be interested in using our facilities and resources include family historians, local historians, rights of way researchers, academics, students, and people interested in finding out more about their local community, house, school, church or chapel.

Records held at Lincolnshire County Council’s Archives Service have been named as amongst 38 national collections designated as having outstanding national and international importance. The Bishops Rolls and Registers (dating from 1214/15) which form the core historical records of the diocese of Lincoln, are of ‘national and international significance’.
