Hackney Archives cares for the archives and local studies collections of the London Borough of Hackney and makes them available to the public for research.
Our collections include:
- official administrative records of the borough council and its predecessors back to 1700
- original records of local organisations and individuals
- a local studies library
If you are researching the history of your house or street, ancestors who lived here, or are doing a local studies project at school, Hackney Archives is the place to start. Anyone can visit Hackney Archives.
