Lichfield Record Office earmarked for possible closure

From Beryl Evans at the Federation of Family History Societies (www.ffhs.org.uk):

PLANS to close Lichfield Record Office and re-home all the county’s archives into a single centre in Stafford are being “explored”.

Staffordshire County Council said the move would save £75,000 on costs such as property maintenance and has launched an online consultation.
