Family and House History

Yate Families and Houses

Yate Heritage Centre has developed a variety of research materials for family historians. We have parish records for Yate (1650-1812), Yate census 1841-1901, directories for the Yate & Sodbury areas (1830's-1939) as well as Ancestry UK available for researchers.

Within our collections we also have material on CD on local vestry records, school log books and enclosure maps.

Please contact us for more information. If we are unable to help you, we have close ties with the Sodbury Vale Family History Group and local record offices.
