The Birmingham Archdiocesan Archives contains the historical documents of the Midland District (1688-1840), Central District (1840-1850), Diocese of Birmingham (1850-1911), Archdiocese of Birmingham (1911-).  It is also the repository of the parishes of the archdiocese and contains many parish registers.
