About The National Archives

The National Archives is the UK government's official archive. It contains over 1,000 years of history and supplies guides, tutorials, and podcasts to help with your research. Findmypast works with TNA to bring you hundreds of thousands of records – many of which you won't find elsewhere online – and we are proud of this ongoing relationship.

Records that you'll see on our site from TNA include British Army service records 1760-1915, the 1911 census and Merchant Navy Seamen Records.

The left-hand menu on this page details each record collection we have published in association with TNA. Learn more about each set of records by clicking on each tab.
