Digital resources

Trafford Local Studies is home to books, documents, maps and images which cover over 600 years of history. In order to make the collection more widely accessible to all our users and to conserve original documents we are currently working on a project of digitisation.

Whether you are interested in local history or tracing your family tree you can now access online resources to help you with your research.
