Summer 2020

Gloucestershire Heritage Hub

Free Access from home

While Gloucestershire Archives, Gloucestershire Libraries and Gloucestershire Family History Society’s research rooms are closed to the public during the Covid-19 pandemic, customers have been unable to access digitised copies of Gloucestershire records free of charge. We’ve been working with Ancestry and can now provide free access to Gloucestershire’s digitised resources until we can welcome you back to the Heritage Hub. Please use this link to access them:

You can also find some expert help on our prisoner records from our very own Paul Evans who offers some handy hints on using these records:

Gloucestershire Libraries have also negotiated access to Find My Past as below:

Access to 'Find My Past' from home

Find My Past’, family history site will be accessible from home to all Gloucestershire Libraries customers whilst our libraries are closed due to the Coronavirus outbreak.  This site can normally only be accessed from a PC in one of our libraries. Instead of using your personal library account to access the website, you will need to use the following details to log in:


Password: FMP2020

These details can be entered into the 'Sign In' page:

For privacy reasons, we are asking users not to start or update their own family trees on this account. Instead you should register/sign into your own personal account with ‘Find My Past’.  This will require your own purchase of subscription or credits to access hints and records within your own account.
