We have genealogy books, a CD and historic maps for sale.


There are currently two books for sale.

  • A Rogue’s Gallery – is a book by Elizabeth Jack, published in 2009 by The History Press, containing photographs and details of some prisoners held in Gloucester Gaol in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
  • Discover Gloucestershire Ancestors -Volume 1 is also by Elizabeth Jack and was self- published in March 2012.  It is a guide to the archives that you can find relating to your Gloucestershire ancestors.  Twelve areas have been covered in this volume and each chapter can be purchased individually if you only wish to concentrate on one aspect of your research.  Volume 2 will be available shortly.

Photographic CD

During research at Gloucestershire Archives, I came across four books containing photographs and some records of the prisoners held in Gloucester Gaol at the end of the 19th and start of the 20th centuries.  In order to preserve the images and make them available to others, photographs were taken of each mugshot and committed to CD.
  • A Rogue’s Gallery CD  This CD contains almost 800 photographs of prisoners held in Gloucester Gaol together with information on them and their crimes.  It does NOT contain photos or records of ALL prisoners held in the gaol during that period.

Historic Maps

Maps are a great aid to family history research.  These maps have been copied from the original tithe, enclosure or estate maps by Geoff Gwatkin.  The maps come with a list of the land owners, where it exists.
