URLs, relating to Merioneth as a whole or to Merioneth as
a part of Wales
is a county created in 1283 after the conquest of The Principality of
Wales in 1282. The County existed until 1974 when it became part
of the new counties of Gwynedd and Clwyd.
Two Family History Societies serve Merionethshire:
Which covers the majority of the old county
and Clwyd FHS
Which covers the western commote of Edeirnion
The split between Gwynedd and Clwyd broadly reflects the boarder
of the two
Anglican Diocese of North Wales; Bangor
and Saint Asaph.
For the sake of convenience all Merionethshire parish records
in the Diocese
of Bangor are seen as the responsibility of Gwynedd FHS
and those of St
Asaph are the responsibility of Clwyd,
so some PR's covering the post 1974 Gwynedd Local Authority area which
were in the Diocese of St Asaph have been transcribed and may be
purchased from Clwyd FHS, for example, Llanuwchllyn.

I must say that I was pretty peeved when I heard that you had taken
over theMerioneth Gen web pages.
The old pages were not of much use, and as I have thousands of
pages of transcriptions and historical data relating to the county that
are hanging about all over the place, I asked Rootsweb about the
Merionethshire Genweb some six months ago, seeing it as the ideal place
to bring all my stuff together,
but was told that it was taken. However, no hard feelings, good
luck to you
with the venture - it can only be an improvement on the past effort.
