Links & Resources

Resources to be found at the Carnegie Heritage Centre range from a large selection of Local History books, Street directories and maps of the area.

  • We have over 400 box files of newspaper articles, pictures and ephemera with information on people, streets and buildings in Hull & surrounding areas.
  • There is a vast collection of information on local causalities from WW1 & WW2 as some volunteers have concentrated on researching local military causalities, producing booklets containing war time records and family information for members of the public to look at.
  • There is a large collection of Hull Daily Mail Flashbacks which are catalogued so they can be searched on our internal database if you are looking for old newspaper photographs.
  • We have volunteers who are ex Road Haulage drivers and they have created an archive of photos and stories from their time traveling the country and they are always happy to talk to others from the trade.
  • The centre also sell second hand books from the centre which are surplus to our requirements and we also have a shop on this web site which sells new books, some published by ourselves but all with local interest.
  • The Carnegie Heritage Centre is also home to the East Yorkshire Family History Society and houses all their Monumental Inscription books which are for sale, either from the centre or by post from their web site.
  • The Old Kingstonians society rent space to house their memorabilia and this can be looked at if an appointment is made with them by visiting their web site and arranging a time when one of them will be in.
  • The Carnegie Heritage Centre volunteers are here to help people with both local history and family history enquiries on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9.30am to 2.30pm.
