Part 11 - Public Records Office

Between 1984 and 1993 Handbooks were published listing records of the Admiralty (Part 7), Colonial Office (Part 2), Dominions Office (Part 10), Foreign Office (Part 5), Home Office (Part 3) and War Office (Part 4). In addition, Part 9 described the personal collections held at the Public Record Office that have been filmed by the AJCP.

In the final few years of the Project, further records of these departments were filmed. Unfortunately, it was not feasible to issue new editions of seven parts of the Handbook to incorporate these additions. Instead, they have been grouped together in Part 11, which completes the publication of the Handbook.

In should be noted that in 2003 the name of the Public Record Office was changed to the National Archives (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/).

A preview version of Part 11 of the Handbook can be found online via Google Books.
