Local history groups
There are many local history groups to join if you are interested in finding out more about the history of Stockton-on-Tees and the surrounding areas.
Stockton-on-Tees Local History Group
The Stockton-on-Tees Local History Group is a small group which started in May 2001.
They have conducted research into various aspects of the town's history and produce two local journals a year called the 'Stockton-on-Tees Local History Journal'.
The group is self-supporting, with members contributing to the costs. They welcome enquiries and information about Stockton's history. As they are all volunteers, they cannot undertake research for family historians or student projects. However, many of the articles they produce contain family history information.
The Stockton-on-Tees Local History Group would like to make their Journal available to a wider audience. If you would like a copy of a journal or an individual article, contact the Secretary.
A charge is made to cover the cost of printing and postage. The journals or articles are produced as A5 booklets.
