How to assess the main Websites for researching Familes & Buildings in Wessex

The first port of call is the A2A site, which is a huge database for all archives in England. It does have a southwest section if needed, or you can go to the relevant County Record Offices through the site or using the links go straight to their web sites. It would also be worthwhile if you e-mailed the Offices before to request specific items to be there when they come. Just scroll down the list of websites on the left and click on these links which will take you to various sites. Good Luck!
