The Library is the main repository for family history research in Wales holding a vast number of records useful to the family historian - census returns, probate records, nonconformist records and tithe maps, to name but a few, will help at some point during research. Before you visit some preparation work is needed -
Talk to relations and friends of the family for information.
Search for evidence within the family to corroborate this information - certificates, photographs, diaries, letters, newspaper cuttings etc.
Create and organise the information as a family tree in a clear and concise way, either on paper or using computer software.
Arrange a visit to the Library, check the website for opening times, sources available, reader's ticket information etc
Why not book one of our Information Sessions. Our reading room staff can provide one to one sessions on a variety of subjects and these can be tailored to fit your requirements
