Welsh Family History: A Guide to Research icon
This handbook on Welsh genealogy deals primarily with those aspects of family history research that are unique to Wales. Originally published by the Association of Family History Societies of Wales, it is considered the best book ever written on Welsh genealogy. It is certainly a very comprehensive handbook, with over twenty chapters treating the essential elements of Welsh genealogy. Each of the chapters is written by a specialist and is designed to guide the reader through the pitfalls and challenges of Welsh family history research. Chapters include: Archives in Wales, Family History Societies of Wales, Parish Registers, Civil Registration and the Census, Nonconformity, Surnames of Wales, Place Names, Basic Welsh for Family Historians, the IGI for Wales, Estate Records, Maritime Records, Wills, Education, and Parochial Records, Court Records, and Manuscript and Printed Pedigrees. For this new second edition, each author was given the opportunity to update his or her text in the light of recent developments, particularly in the area of local government and archives. While this has led to significant changes in a number of chapters, the aims and objectives of the first edition have been carefully preserved."

Second Stages in Researching Welsh Ancestry icon
Anyone who has had any success in researching their Welsh ancestry will know that a grasp of specialized Welsh genealogical methods and sources is only one of several factors that contributed to that success. They will know, for example, how important it is in Welsh research to have some understanding of the social, cultural, religious, and economic background of the communities in which those ancestors lived. This book attempts to broaden that understanding, especially for the period prior to 1800 when most researchers begin to experience difficulties. In addition, it aims to make readers more aware of some little-known sources and the special uses that may be applied to the information found in these sources. The book follows the format of the Rowlands' highly successful Welsh Family History and is a compendium of contributions by experts in different fields. Both books have their origins in the residential courses in family history offered at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, since 1986, and, although there is some overlap in the time periods considered within the two books, there is virtually no duplication of content. Apart from chapters dealing with aspects of community life, there are chapters relating to different occupations, surnames, old documents, maps, estate records, and family histories (the Vaughans of Trawsgoed, the Pugh family of Llanfair and Llanbedr, the Lloyds of Ty Newydd, Moris Reignald, Titus Jones, and "Baron" Lewis Owen). The book contains several case studies and is rounded off with examples of work done as part of the accreditation process on some more recent university courses. Other chapters cover Catholics in Wales, Urban Growth and Development, People in Mining and Metals, Bartrum's Welsh Genealogies, Homes of Surnames, English Settlement in Montgomeryshire, and Religion and Society in 19th-century Wales."

Maps for Family and Local History: The Records of the Tithe, Valuation Office and National Farm Surveys icon
"Maps for Family and Local History shows how three great land surveys can provide information on ancestral homes, as well as fascinating historical snapshots of specific areas. Covering 1836 to 1943, the Tithe, Valuation Office, and National Farm Surveys provide a wealth of information on rural and urban localities, on dwellings, settlements, and landscapes, as well as the status of householders. The text gives the rationale behind the surveys and covers each in detail. Fully updated by map experts from The National Archives of the U.K., this illustrated guide is the perfect companion to researching those maps."
