Access Discovery at home

Members of Yarra Plenty Regional Library can now access the UK National Archive’s Discovery service both in the library and remotely via the library website using their library card.
Over 5 % of the collection of the archives based in Kew (London) has now been digitised and is available online.  Popular records include medals, wills, Royal Navy Service records, RAF combat reports, Royal Marines’ service records and more.  
Recent additions to the service include naturalisation case papers.   These are naturalisation petitions completed by individuals applying to become British citizens between 1801 and 1871.
Not sure what you are looking for?  The National Archives also have a terrific series of research guides to get your research started.
To access Discovery and other genealogy e-resources go to www.yprl.vic.gov.au – Research – Genealogy – Genealogy e-resources
