Glamorgan Research Publications

Welcome to Glamorgan Research Publications:

"Lynn John and Jennie Newman formed L & J Research Services in 1999 to provide research services in the County of Glamorgan.
Between us we have over 45 years of experience in family history.

Some years ago, we realised how much family and community historians appreciated indexes. Since that time, our project has been the indexing as many records as we can, and publishing them in CD format. At present, we have indexed nearly all the Parish registers of Marriage deposited with Glamorgan Archives (1837-1900). This is an ongoing project, as our aim is to reach the years leading up to 1935.

As any genealogist or local historian will appreciate, these indexes are an invaluable aid to tracing family history in Glamorgan, where because of the early patronymics, giving rise to the many named Thomas, Williams and Jones, and the non-conformity in Wales, searching ancestors can be slightly more difficult than in England. A Welsh family historian needs all the help he or she can get, and our indexes have proved very helpful to very many.

Currently we are transcribing the Marriages and Births registers in Cardiff; Merthyr Tydfil; Pontypridd and Caerphilly Registry Offices."
