Researching 20th Century Welsh Ancestors
A talk about what sources are available online and in archive offices to help research Welsh ancestors during the 20th century, some researchers may have difficulty searching this period, therefore, the sources mentioned will help them get beyond brick walls and help solve some of the problems encountered. Data Protection and Copyright will also be touched upon.
