Archives and records
Our Archives and Information Management Service, based at the South Lanarkshire Council Archives and Records Centre, is responsible for the selection and preservation of records and archives relating to the South Lanarkshire area.
We select and preserve the records of Council and the local authorities that existed before South Lanarkshire came into being. We also preserve the records of local organisations, businesses and individuals.
Archives are the unique, irreplaceable records of government, business, organisations and people. You can use archives to research your family tree, the building of your house and the development of your local area and community, and to investigate the actions of local and central government.
