Page updated on: 10/06/2019

We have a comprehensive family history service at Carmarthen and Llanelli Library. With digital archiving and technology, information is now easier to access. Researchers can browse the many collections, documents and have free access to both Ancestry  and websites.

Carmarthen, Llanelli and Ammanford library are open six days a week, and offer an IT Suite together with the reference department to help and assist with family history research.  One to one appointments with library and archive staff are available on a Wednesday at Llanelli, Thursday at Carmarthen and Friday at Ammanford for those with more specific needs or searches. 

These one hour sessions are ideal for both those new to Family History and those who are more experienced.  During these sessions, you will be signposted to the relevant collections and services that we have to offer.  Assistance will be offered to access information on genealogical websites as well as being able to view other related collections such as maps, newspapers, local collections and other databases.
