Merionethshire is a county created in 1283 after the conquest of The Principality of Wales in 1282. The County existed until 1974 when it became part of the new counties of Gwynedd and Clwyd.
Two Family History Societies serve Merionethshire:
Gwynedd Family History Society
Which covers the majority of the old county
and Clwyd FHS
Which covers the western commote of Edeirnion
The split between Gwynedd and Clwyd broadly reflects the boarder of the two Anglican Diocese of North Wales; Bangor and Saint Asaph.
For the sake of convenience all Merionethshire parish records
in the Diocese of Bangor are seen as the responsibility of Gwynedd FHS
and those of St Asaph are the responsibility of Clwyd,
so some PR's covering the post 1974 Gwynedd Local Authority area which were in the Diocese of St Asaph have been transcribed and may be purchased from Clwyd FHS, for example, Llanuwchllyn.
