Affiliate Members

The Association has two organisations affiliated to it:

  • National Library of Wales – visit its website for more details

The National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth is the Welsh equivalent of The National Archives and the British Library all within one building complex. It is therefore important that the Association keeps in touch with its developments and future plans, and can act as a voice for family historians who use its facilities.

  • CAPEL- Chapels Heritage Society – visit its website for more details

One of CAPEL’s aims is to try to ensure, if a Chapel closes, its records are kept safely. It advises the Association for example when a graveyard is to close or to have its headstones removed, giving the
member societies the opportunity to ensure details of the monumental inscriptions have been transcribed before such information is lost.
