Are you tracing your family tree?

ALHS does not hold records (we have no dedicated premises for storing them) and regrets cannot at the moment provide research services.

Suggested places to look for information about the parish and its people - Gloucester Archives, Gloucester Family History Society.

Alveston is in Bristol Diocese, so all the church related documents are in Bristol Record Office.

There are also Bristol & Avon Family History Society and Bristol Local Studies in Bristol Central Library.

All these have websites with lots of helpful names and addresses.

The National Archives (at Kew) has an online catalogue and "Access to Archives" or "A2A" which gives countrywide information.

These are all free.

"Findmypast.co.uk" and "Ancestry.co.uk" (which is available free at most libraries) provide tutorials for beginners in family history and there are many books on the subject also available in libraries.
