Welcome to Welsh Genealogy Services

The website of L & J Research

Do you want someone to research your ancestry, tracing your family certificates of birth, marriage and death, parish registers, wills, Land Tax, and other documents or search for a named particular document?

Are you looking for a dedicated Family Historian to research your Family history, as they would their own?

Would you prefer to do your own research using our Indexes on purchasable CDs?

If these are things you require, then you are in the right place, as Welsh Genealogy Services is the ideal for anyone wishing to research their Welsh ancestors. Jennie Newman formed L &J Research Services in 1999 to provide research services in the County of Glamorgan. Jennie has over 30 years of experience in family history, and is a well known figure in her field.

Photograph of St Samlet, Llansamlet Many years ago, we realised how much family and community historians appreciated indexes. Since that time, our project has been the indexing of as many records as we can, and publishing them in CD format. At present, we have indexed nearly all the Parish registers of Marriage deposited with Glamorgan Archives (1837-1900). This is an ongoing project, as my aim is to reach the years leading up to 1935.

Currently we are transcribing the Marriages and Births registers in Cardiff; Merthyr Tydfil; Pontypridd and Caerphilly Registry Offices.

As any genealogist or local historian will appreciate, these indexes are an invaluable aid to tracing family history in Glamorgan where because of the early patronymics, giving rise to the many named Thomas, Williams and Jones. Because of the non-conformity in Wales, searching ancestors can be slightly more difficult than in England. A family historian of Welsh  ancestry needs all the help he or she can get, and our indexes have proved very helpful to very many.
