Baptism Indexes

The first Baptismal Index contains all baptisms from 1724 to 1930 and assumes that the child has been given the father's surname - the present-day practice.
The second Baptismal Index contains baptisms up to
1812 only, and is based on the father's Christian Name - useful for identifying those baptisms where a patronymic has been used.
The third Baptismal Index contains only those children whose mother's surname differs from the father's, or where only the mother's surname appears. There are two
1724 – 1844 and 1844 - 1930

Marriage Indexes
Two indexes Marriages 1717 – 1838 and 1838 – 1901 These are indexed by Groom and Bridegroom

Burial Index
One index covering the period 1724 - 1998

These indexes are intended only as a finding-aid, and do not contain all the detail of the original registers, copies of which can be consulted in the Glamorgan Record Offices. To aid indexing, old-style dates (pre-1752) have been converted to modern usage; where a father has more than two names in the early registers, only the first is treated as a "forename"; all the "ap" pre-fixes have been removed. In the burial index, all widows using their maiden name are listed under their husband's surname, with their maiden name following their forename. Modern place-names have been used where positively identified.
