Kirkcaldy Galleries – Local & Family History Room

Kirkcaldy Galleries – Local & Family History Room, can help you to explore your past and research the local area. Our friendly staff are on hand to help you delve into a vast array of local records including census data, old parish registers, international genealogical index, maps, newspapers and more. We also have microfiche readers and printers available for public use.

We will be able to help you with general enquiries for free, but cannot undertake extensive or complicated research. Any copies of documents do incur a small charge.
