Very interesting archives
Dec 2019
We attended the one of the family history sessions at the Carnegie Heritage Centre whilst on annual leave from work as it was the only way to further our research. It is difficult when you work full time as all the sessions are during the day.

We knew that they held local family history sessions on Tuesdays and Fridays when members of the public can access the society’s records and facilities. You can also pick the knowledge of experts from the local history societies and you can access Ancestry online for free. You just pay any printing/photocopying costs. There are boxes full of records of Hull’s old churches and schools which we wanted to look at. We were hoping for a ‘eureka’ moment but sadly not on this occasion! We spent an interesting couple of hours there though. Sadly our time was cut short as they were expecting a school trip to visit and we were asked to finish up by 1pm.

It is a beautiful building both inside and out so well worth a visit!

Amazing Building and Archive
Sep 2019
On this occasion we attended the Carnegie Heritage Centre during an open day as part of the Heritage Open Days. There was an exhibition of HGV’s which interested my husband.

A very pleasant gentleman came over and gave us a guided tour of this amazing local history archive and library, explaining all about their collection. There are records of old churches and schools which I had no idea about. I knew they held local family history sessions on Tuesdays and Fridays when members of the public can access the computers, resources and the knowledge of experts from the local history societies. You just pay a donation towards printing costs. Unfortunately it is impossible to attend these when working full time.

Perhaps next time we are on annual leave we can attend a session to further our family history research. You never know, we may just get a ‘eureka!’ moment!

It is a beautiful building both inside and out so well worth a visit!

Brilliant help with family history from experts
Mar 2019 • Couples
The Carnegie Heritage Centre building on the corner of Anlaby Road and Walton Street as is beautiful with amazing architecture. It is used as a library archive and reference facility for local history/historians. There are lots of resources and books to peruse and also to purchase. The building also houses a book bindery.

We visited to attend an excellent family history session on a Friday. It is an open house session where you can get information and advice from different experts or just use the computers to access ‘Ancestry’ free of charge. You just pay a printing/paper charge (donation) per sheet printed. We got some very helpful advice regarding researching military history within our family.

Our grateful thanks to all concerned in helping us.

Great resource

Dedicated volunteers, digging out all kinds of information. They obviously have a passion that goes way beyond volunteering. Great resource.

Breaking Brick Walls
Jul 2017 • Friends
A great bunch of people can help you with your family history research and they love nothing more that those 'brick walls' we all come across when doing our family history. They hold help desks on Monday afternoons at The Carnegie Heritage Centre, where their library is based, at at other times right across the East Riding of Yorkshire. Meetings are held monthly in Beverley, Bridlington, Hull and Scarborough and visitors are very welcome. (Please see their web site for details of all events.)
