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'
link above. The general intention is to indicate
in which parish any of the names may be found.
I have cross-indexed references
be helpful and here and there, for added interest, you will find place
names and/or the meaning of a name.
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'
under which I have placed some of the entries but I feel it
important to be able to identify the parish register(s)
for the name in which you are interested.
The Index of Welsh Wills proved
Chester 1545-1858 is also included,
from some National
Commercial Directories and reference books.
Where there are not
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.
is my sincere hope that these pages, which have been added to
almost every day since February 2007, will become a regularly
tool to aid research in the Clwyd area, and my grateful thanks must go to my
adviser', my son Duncan,
whom the pages may never have become airborne!
