Chance to win a Jersey Archive subscription

Monday 17 April 2023

Jersey Archive is offering history buffs the chance to win a year's free subscription to their online catalogue.

All islanders have to do to win, is spend 10 minutes taking part in a short survey for users of its online catalogue.

The survey consists of 25 questions on topics such as searching the catalogue, value for money, usability, the left-hand menu, and the home page- it hopes to inform how improvements can be made to the Archive & Collections Online service.

Whether islanders use the catalogue every day, once a year, or are a new deep-diver into history, their feedback is being welcomed and they should complete the survey here by 30 April.


Pictured: the subscription provides access to millions of pages of scanned original documents online including a collection of 'Aliens Cards'.

Jersey Heritage cares for over a quarter of a million items which can broadly be divided into the Archive, Archaeology, Art and Social History Collections. The catalogue allows the public to search the descriptions of these items, view collections held in storage and begin their research into Jersey's history or their family history.

The searchable collections include the JEP Photographic Archive, Claude Cahun, Aliens Cards, Funeral Directors' Records, Occupation Collections, and much more.

Annual subscription to the catalogue is typically available at a price of £35 per year (or £25 per year for members of Jersey Heritage or the Channel Islands Family History Society).

If the winner is already a subscriber, they will be offered a free year of subscription following the expiry of their current subscription.
