Access to family papers

Access to private Rothschild papers 

Researchers should note that Rothschild family papers are subject to the Archive's conditions of access. Although records of the Rothschild business up to the date of 1945 are generally accessible to researchers, access to Rothschild family papers is at the discretion of the Archive, and special permission from donors and depositors may additionally be required to access all, or part, of family collections. All family papers later than 1945 are currently closed to researchers.

In the Guide, descriptions of such collections may be given; the inclusion of such descriptions does not mean that these records are available for consultation.

For further information about collections of private papers of the Rothschild family, please contact The Rothschild Archive ».
