Public Record Office

The Public Record Office (abbreviated as PRO, pronounced as three letters and referred to as the PRO) was the national archive service of the United Kingdom from 1838 until 2003, when it was merged with the Historical Manuscripts Commission to form The National Archives. In 2006 the new organisation also took over the Office of Public Sector Information. The name Public Record Office is no longer in official use, though some researchers prefer it to avoid confusion with national archives of other countries. for more click here
