Researching family history has recently become popular. The Heritage Centre has an archive corner with censuses, birth records, albums of school photographs, old newspaper cutting, year books and feature photographs of village history and events.

The extensive graveyard surrounding the museum has been mapped by the Manshead Archaeological Society of Dunstable and volunteers from the Santander Bank in Milton Keynes and all legible gravestones have been recorded in an index which is available in the Heritage Centre.

The parish records of Woburn can be purchased on C.D. from the Bedfordshire Family History Society at:
