Records in the Public Record Office
The Public Record Office holds records from
- Isle of Man Government departments and their predecessors such as the Boards
- Other organisations which are part of Government including the General Registry
- Manx Local Authorities
- Manx Courts
- Other Manx public bodies included in the Public Records Act 1999.
We do not have the papers of businesses or private individuals.
The earliest records here date from 1800 although most are twentieth century.
As the Public Records Act 1999 came in to operation relatively recently, we are still in the process of bringing records in and listing them, therefore no lists are currently online.
If the public records you require date between 1900 and 1980 please check our Accessing Public Records page. Even if we do not yet hold the records, we will be happy to help you locate them.
For most public records prior to 1900 and all other Manx archives, including business and personal papers and sources for family history research, the Manx National Heritage Library is the best place to start your enquiries.
If you require Government records from 1980 to present, please contact the department or body concerned direct.
