Landmark twin launch for Public Records Office

New website makes the collections widely accessible

The Isle of Man Public Record Office is celebrating the twin launch of a digital repository and dedicated online catalogue.

The PRO, which is part of the Central Registry, preserves the historically and culturally significant records created by Isle of Man public bodies, chiefly Tynwald, Government departments, Courts and local authorities.

The new website provides the opportunity for people to search both paper and digital catalogues, making the collections widely accessible. 

The digital repository enables the Record Office to accept digital records from public bodies and carry out preservation actions to ensure that they survive as part of the national archives.
