Help with catalogue searches

Jersey Heritage cares for well over a quarter of a million items which can broadly be divided into the Archive, Archaeology, Art and Social History Collections.

The Jersey Heritage catalogue allows you to search the descriptions of these items, view descriptions and images of collections and start your research into Jersey’s history or your own family history.

The main search box is a free text, Google type search which allows you to start your research.

Family History and Advanced Searching

The advanced search option allows you to search in more detail through our indexes in the archive, art, archaeology and museum collections.

If you are particularly interested in your Jersey family history you can use the advanced search option to enter a surname, e.g. de Gruchy in the person or institution box. A drop down list of de Gruchy names will appear.
