 ROBERTS Marriages   SALISBURY  Marriages    WILLIAMS  Marriages    WYNNE Marriages

This master index contains all of the surnames and many of the more unusual first names to be found in the parish register transcriptions of Clwyd (Denbighshire and Flintshire in North Wales)
 and listed on my 'Key' page - link above.  The general intention is to indicate in which parish any of the names may be found.

The original parish registers were transcribed and indexed by volunteer members of Clwyd Family History Society, the results printed, and are for sale by the Society.

Experts may not always agree with the 'umbrella' name under which I have placed some of the entries but I feel it is more important to be able to identify the parish register(s) for the name in which you are interested.

The Index of Welsh Wills proved at Chester 1545-1858 is also included, together with extracts from some National Commercial Directories and reference books.

I have cross-indexed references where it may be helpful and here and there, for added interest, you will find place names and/or the meaning of a name 

Where there are not yet first names with any particular reference number (owing to the amount of material waiting to be added), on request  I will insert the missing names.
E-mail me quoting surname/reference number         eg JACKSON  554.

It is my sincere hope that these pages, which have been added to almost every day since February 2007, will become a regularly used tool to aid research in the Clwyd area, and my grateful thanks must go to my
'technical adviser', my son Duncan, without whom the pages may never have become airborne!
