Our collections

Family and personal records

Personal and family records include diaries, letters, legal documents, photograph albums and apprenticeship indentures, among other material.

We hold records of many local people and families, from prominent local families, such as the Chance family, who owned Chance Brothers glassworks, to everyday people who lived and worked in Sandwell.

Catalogues for some of these collections are available on the Black Country History website.  If you can't find what you are looking for, please contact us
