    This is the catalogue for the Essex Record Office, which holds not only documents, maps and photographs but also sound recordings and videos. The collections cover oral history; selected items from BBC Essex radio; selections from local hospital TV and talking newspapers; videos of local interest, including many from the East Anglian Film Archive; dialect recordings; and recordings of music performed by local musicians, including a major collection of folk music and folk dance drawn from Essex sources. The site also offers well-produced user guidelines to four registers: family, house, vehicles and electoral rolls. Official registers are excellent avenues into researching many aspects of local history and culture but their records can sometimes be difficult to understand, so the tips on how to search and how to make sense of the results are very useful. The advanced search tool can be used to narrow results to one type of material only (e.g. audiovisual). To watch the moving image and sound holdings an account needs to be created, and registration is free.
