Data Online provides access
to databases created from information held at London
Metropolitan Archives. The information will provide a useful tool for anyone
carrying out research on specific subjects.
London Metropolitan Archives online catalogue - You can now look through our collections catalogue online. You can use this facility to plan which documents you want to see when you visit us in person. You can search the catalogue without registering with us, simply click the guest button. To view original documents you must visit LMA, before doing so, register for our History Card. The card will also enable you to use more of our services when you visit LMA and allow you to reserve documents in advance.
Collage Image Database - View our photographs, maps, prints, paintings and drawings online. Nearly 100,000 images of London are available.
Moving Here - Moving Here explores, records and illustrates why people came to England over the last 200 years and what their experiences were and continue to be. It offers free access, for personal and educational use, to an online catalogue of versions of original material related to migration history from local, regional and national archives, libraries and museums. LMA has contributed over 10,000 items to the database.
AIM 25 - AIM25 is a major project to provide electronic access to collection-level descriptions of the archives of over one hundred higher education institutions, learned societies, cultural organisations and livery companies within the greater London area. Every collection at London Metropolitan Archives is described on the site.
Ancestry.co.uk - View our parish and poor law records online along with wills and other records of particular interest to family historians. A subscription is required, but you can use Ancestry for free if you visit London Metropolitan Archives. More content is being added all the time and we expect to compile historical records of around 77 million Londoners from 1538 on this site as part of the first phase of work.
Access to Archives (A2A) - this will link you to another separate site, which contains catalogues from
archives throughout England. LMA has contributed many thousands of catalogue
references to this website, so it is a great place to begin looking for particular
documents that may be held at LMA. On the A2A search page, just select 'London
Metropolitan Archives' from the drop-down list of 'location of archives',
then do your search. Please remember that A2A is a catalogue, and does not
show images of documents, unlike EVA and BAL.
