The medieval archive of Durham Cathedral Priory is one of the most extensive and comprehensive in the British Isles. It provides a wide-ranging and rich resource for the study of genealogy and indeed all aspects of medieval life in the north-east of England in particular, but also for the whole country, and much of Scotland as well. The article outlines how the different types of materials in the archive can be applied to genealogical studies.

Paper presented at the FMG Conference, University of Durham, 31st August 2017.
