    I have always found SRO a seemingly never-ending resource, from photographs, maps, directories to newspapers and original parish records. The staff are always very helpful, and willing to help with suggesting alternative records, and making guesses where the handwriting is dubious. Well worth booking up a fiche reader before you go, as you can also request a desk near to a power point for laptops. Highlight of my visits has been discovering a hand drawn pedigree of my mother's Scrivener ancestors, in two long (15 feet perhaps) scrolls, complete with coats of arms.
