Archives

Our archive collections are here to be explored, and you can discover them through online information as well as onsite at Ebbw Vale.   We are working on our new, fully searchable, online catalogue but in the meantime PDF catalogues can be found on the left-hand panel of this page.  Also check Archives Hub and Discovery for information on our collections.

The content of some of our collections (including parish registers and electoral rolls) are available on:-

Ancestry

Find My Past

The Genealogist

and some images on People’s Collection Wales 

Please contact us at enquiries@gwentarchives.gov.uk for help and advice if needed!

For information on using our online catalogues and resources please see our film below:

 

Whilst most of the collections we hold are available for research, access is restricted to some due to:

  • The fragile condition of documents
  • Requests for restricted access by the depositor
  • The sensitive nature of the information they contain

Please read our guidance on access to restricted records
