Brecon CathedralBaptism, Marriage and Burial Records

Parish Registers are records of baptisms, marriages and burials made by the church. Because the census and official records do not go back further than 1837, these records are an invaluable resource for your research.

Tracing an Ancestor

To trace an ancestor, you will need to know where they lived and the church they went to - Parishes correspond quite closely to villages of the same name. Whereas a rural parish may include a small village and two or three hamlets, there will be many parishes in the city, so you would need to determine in which your family lived.
