West Glamorgan Archive Service is the place to learn about your local area, trace your family history, research your student dissertation and much more.

While you are staying home though, the West Glamorgan Archives team have put together a range of activities for you to enjoy including family history hints and tips, interesting items from their Collection, snippets from films and even a quiz.

Researchers at the service still have access to the Online Catalogue and are available if you have any queries.  All details are available on their website https://www.swansea.gov.uk/westglamorganarchives

The website also includes a series of Online Exhibitions and Leaflets which you may find useful and interesting.

The West Glamorgan Archive Service has also recently launched their first Online Resource for Schools which will be added to frequently.
