  • Formulate Your Question
    Identify the scope of your enquiry as precisely as possible.
  • Discuss Your Topic with Archives' Staff
    When you call the Archives for an appointment, discuss your research topic with staff so that we can advise what records are available and how much time it will take to go through the material
