Welcome to Midlands Historical Data. This is a digital library for local and family historians interested in the Midlands - the old counties of Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire (Inc. Birmingham) and Worcestershire, although we do have a little material from neighbouring counties. The whole collection can be viewed on-line, and - with the exception of Electoral Rolls - is also available on CD.

Quarterly/annual Subscriptions or Pay-as-you-go options are available to view the library on-line. Payment is either by credit card or by cheque (only in GB £ sterling).  Our credit card processing is handled by WorldPay to assure the security of your personal information.  Read more
