FamilySearch adds Welsh parish register indexes

A couple of days ago, in a post about this blog's first anniversary, I asked for a bit more Welsh news. Since then I've been on something of a run with it...!

FamilySearch ( has just added free to access indexes for several collections of Welsh parish registers, each of which links to the images of the same collections on FindmyPast ( They are located in the United Kingdom and Ireland category of Historical Records.

The counties catered for are Brecknockshire, Carenarvonshire, Cardiganshire, Carmarthenshire, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Glamorganshire, Merionethshire, Monmouthshire, Pembrokeshire, Radnorshire. All apparently cover the period from 1538 to 1912.
