For no particular reason other than there are some wonderful, free, diverse resources on its website, this week I’m spotlighting the National Library of Wales.

If you have Welsh branches in your family tree, these records are well worth exploring.

This list includes just a few of the indexed, original sources they have made available online:

Crime & Punishment   

Welsh Journals including magazines 1735-2007 

There’s also a first-steps guide to family history research, a guide to church records in Wales,  and a list of independent researchers who carry out work for clients at the NLW.

So, with all those resources, you can start your search for your Welsh ancestors right away!
