These leaflets are intended as guides to sources held by the Essex Record Office.  They are not a complete list of such records.  Searches of Seax for keywords will locate all the records deposited here and provide a description.  To view the original documents (where no digital images are on Seax) you will need to visit the Essex Record Office, Wharf Road, Chelmsford CM2 6YT.  Details of opening hours and the CARN (County Archive Research Network) readers' tickets necessary to view original documents can be found by clicking on Contact Us at the top of the screen.  If you would like a copy of any of the source lists please e-mail with details of the title(s).  Further titles will follow.
