Our Claremont H.Q. is now closed to visitors pending the relocation of the YAS to a new headquarters facility. There will be a part time office service based at Claremont in the interim period (see the Visiting Us link).

The Claremont Library closed on the 31st March 2015 pending relocation of its materials to the University of Leeds Library and some of the more popular items relocated to the Leeds City Central Library.

The YAS's Archived Collections at Claremont are now closed pending their relocation to the University of Leeds Library's Special Collections (in the Brotherton Library).
These should be accessible in 2016.

The Section is actively looking at circulating the Yorkshire Family Historian in electronic format to those members willing to co-operate in this modern method of distribution.  Additionally we are exploring the process of placing the Historian in a Members Only section of this website.
