Hyde is now in the Metropolitan Borough of Tameside and as such
you might find the following information useful which I recently sent to the
How lucky we are in Tameside to have so many FREE Research Services
available. Why anyone would think of paying for a professional researcher
beats me. After yet another fascinating visit to our new Local Studies &
Archive Centre, I thought I would try to bring details of all these free
services to a wider audience.
Firstly Tameside is the name of the Metropolitan Borough formed in 1974
which covers the east Manchester towns of Ashton-under-Lyne, Audenshaw,
Denton, Droylsden, Dukinfield, Hyde, Longdendale, Mossley and Stalybridge.
It straddles the river Tame with its feet in both Lancashire and Cheshire.
The boroughs web site is www.tameside.gov.uk
Tameside Local Studies & Archive Centre.
Originally established in 1974, the new custom built building was opened
in 2005 and houses records and archives from all the Tameside
towns. The facilities in the reading room include several film readers,
computers, printers and photocopying. The staff are very knowledgeable and
always willing to answer any queries put to them. They can be contacted by
Family History Trail
This is a 'walk in' advice service staffed by volunteers from the Dukinfield
Group of the FHS of Cheshire. It is primarily intended for the beginner
just starting out in Family History but anyone who needs help is welcome.
The sessions take place each first Tuesday of the month (2-4pm) at the
Tameside Local Studies & Archive Centre. This is also a good way to be
introduced to the facilities of the new centre.
Family History Centre at the Setantii Visitors Attraction.
