About us

The Glamorgan Family History Society acts as a focal point for anyone who may be interested in Family History and Genealogy, not just those whose roots are in Glamorgan. Many members live within the historic county, but equally, many live far beyond its boundaries.

At monthly meetings, members share experiences, sort out problems, exchange information and enjoy the guest speakers whose topics cover Family History research and records, and the many related aspects such as Local History, Customs, Notable Inhabitants etc. Beginners' Nights are included in each year's Programme. The programme is reproduced in the "Branches" section.

Society Members help with the various on-going projects - dealing with the transcription and indexing of relevant Glamorgan documents and records. The results, produced in booklet & microfiche, are available to all members world wide, and are a great help in gaining access to vital sources of information. Members Interests are now included under the Documents tab.
