Come and visit us in the oak-panelled Victorian library of Callendar House; this is the place to come to find out about the history of Falkirk district or to start your family history research. Local archives and photographs are held here, and may be viewed by the public. Most aspects of local life are covered, from valuation and electoral rolls to old newspapers, from school records to town council minutes, from foundry catalogues to church bazaar programmes, and all sorts of things in between.
The Archive is open free of charge to all researchers. We do recommend you ring and speak to one of the team in advance to make sure we have everything you need as some records are held off site.
Archives opening hours: 1000-1230 hours, 1330-1600 hours, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (Closed Tuesdays) (Closed local holidays)
