Old Gala House Research Room

Old Gala House, and our Research Room there, has reopened for the summer season.

Our volunteers will be there every Thursday (10am to 3.45pm) to help you with your research, whether you need a bit of help to break through a brick wall or if you're just not sure where to start with your family history.

The Research Room is small so it might be better to book in advance via the Contacts facility on our website. You can also visit on Tuesdays and Fridays but by appointment only. Resources include Monumental Inscriptions, Censuses, Old Parish Registers, Poor Law and Police Records, some school records, Family Trees and many books and journals for researching family and local history.

The Old Gala Club have a new exhibition in Old Gala House (open Tue - Sat from Apr to Oct, Mon - Sun in Jul & Aug) with a great selection of photographs of people who lived and worked in Gala including the Police and Fire service. And there's a coffee shop and free parking as well.

You can find us at Old Gala House, Scott Crescent, Galashiels, TD1 3JS.
