Current Progress

The BLFHS Transcription Group is working hard to make available to members as many Breconshire church and chapel records as possible. The table below, shows which parishes already have transcribed records and which are in preparation.

The transcribed records for the parishes of Brecon St John, Crickadarn, Llanafanfawr, and Llanelly are available to the public. The transcribed records for other parishes are available only to members.

Reminder: It is worth searching parishes other than the obvious ones. Some ancestors would travel miles to a preferred chapel or church, particularly for important ceremonies, and others went to the nearest church, rather than the one in their home parish.
