Essex Record Office: 'Essex Archives Online'

New look for ERO's online catalogue

Users of the Essex Record Office online catalogue, Seax, will notice a big change on Thursday 21 January.
We have been busy working on an updated version of the site, which is going to be renamed Essex Archives Online.
We have tidied the site up to give it a cleaner look, and make it easier for you to find what you are looking for. See below for a sneak preview of how the new site will look.
The main changes you will notice will be in how the site looks rather than how it works. The changes will not affect any subscriptions or information you have saved on the system.
You will still be able to access the service through the existing web address but can now also reach it directly via
The site will include user guides should you need any help in navigating it, and as always you can contact us on should you need any assistance.
To allow the changes to take place, the site will not be available 9.00am-10.00am GMT on Thursday 21 January; we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Happy searching!
