The Clwyd Family History Society's Resource Centre is situated within the Community Enterprise Centre in Cefn Mawr, in the south of the County Borough of Wrexham. It was opened in June 2004 by local historian and publisher, W Alister Williams, of Bridge Books in Wrexham.
The part of the building used by the society is self contained and offers disabled access and toilet facilities. It has a small kitchen to prepare hot drinks, and a members' room where food can be eaten. The 'Community Cafe' is next door and offers a wide variety of light snacks and sandwiches.
The Clwyd FHS has transcribed, indexed and published copies of all the parish registers within its area, up to 1812 (and in many cases, up to 1837 and beyond). This project is ongoing and updates of new publications are available in the journal or on the society website. The society has also undertaken to record and publish Monumental Inscriptions and we would welcome volunteers to co-ordinate the project and to assist with transcribing.
Copies of all the society publications are available to purchase or can be studied at the centre.
The Centre is open to members and non-members free of charge. Non-members may join the Society during their visit. The current annual membership fee is £15.
All users are expected to observe the Conditions of Use, which they will be shown by the Duty Supervisor.
