About

The Archive and Genealogy service has responsibility for the preservation of the civic archives and private collections relating to industry, buildings and social history. The collection is a valuable source of information providing a comprehensive record of significant developments in the city from the mid 17th century. The genealogy database www.derry.rootsireland.ie includes over one million records. The staff are available by appointment to give short presentation on the collections and tracing your ancestors.
