The most enjoyable way of doing any family or local history research is to come to a local studies library and experience the excitement of discovering history for yourself.
If this is not possible for you, then we welcome enquiries by post, email and telephone. Many questions can be answered free of charge.
Fee for research services
If it will take a lot of time to answer your question or if we need to pass your query onto staff at our main local studies collections, we offer a chargeable service. Our fee covers the time it takes staff to research and reply to your question.
A commercial research service for business purposes is also available.
Contact the Derbyshire Record Office or Chesterfield local studies library for more information.
