Description
 
Written as course notes for lectures that Graham Jaunay (a South Australian professional genealogist) gives, this booklet is designed to aid the researcher based in Australia to access far distant records. The book examines the specific issues researchers may encounter when researching in Wales and advises where the most useful records are located, their coverage, any issues relating to them, and how to access them.

This gives a good overview for those just starting their Welsh research.
