If you're exploring the history of Gateshead or tracing your family tree we have resources to help, expert staff on hand to guide you and a wide range of interesting events and activities.
Our main collections are held within Information Services at Gateshead Central Library while St Mary's Heritage Centre contains material relating to Gateshead's oldest church. St Mary's was the original parish church for the town and the venue of all Church of England burials before 1811 and all baptisms and marriages before 1825.
If you're visiting to do research it's often best to phone ahead, that way we can reserve a PC, microfilm or microfiche reader for you and ensure that we have the materials you need.
