National Archives UK

The National Archives has launched it new-look website after several months of public consultation and design.  Not only is there a new homepage layout but also a 'mega menu' which drops open to display all the main sections of the page for fast, efficient access.  The Archives hope that the new interface will offer a better experience for mobile users, who make up approximately 20% of the sites visitors.  Their many online collections can be browsed in a number of categories, including

  • 20th Century Politics 
  • Air Force 
  • Army 
  • Crime
  • Looted Art
  • Maps
  • Marines
  • Medals
  • Merchant Navy
  • Migration
  • Navy
  • Wills and Probate
The National Archives also boast a series of podcasts in which Researchers and historians from The National Archives and elsewhere offer expert guidance on researching family history and unlocking the multitude of sources available.
