There is a frequent bus service from the city centre to Dumbarton Road, Kelvinhall Subway is just round the corner and Partick train station is only a ten minute walk away.

The Centre offers a wide range of resources to help trace your ancestors.  These include a well stocked reference library with new books added regularly by our librarian, microfilms of original censuses covering most areas of the west of Scotland, terminals where researchers can view genealogical websites, and a wealth of other data exclusive to the Society. 

Before the onset of the pandemic, the Centre was open to members for five three hour sessions per week, with two volunteers on duty to help and advise.  Prospective members were welcome to drop in, look round and chat to a volunteer.  Hopefully, we will one day again be able to offer these facilities to our members.

As of October 2022, the Centre is open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 1pm-4pm.
