The Rhondda Cynon Taf Local Studies Network is a partnership between the Libraries & Museum Service and the Glamorgan Archives.

Rhondda Cynon Taf Libraries and Museums Service and the Glamorgan Archives all work together to document the history of our area. We have a vast wealth of resources available to you for research including records of the council, local businesses and individuals.

This site will help you find which of the three services holds the information you are looking for and how to get access to it.

The site is divided into easy sections. Firstly each service describes the type of information it holds and the services it offers.

Finally we offer a beginners guide to researching three of the most requested topics: -

Your Family’s history or Genealogy.

Your House’s history.

Your Community’s History

This section will identify some of the main types of records that will be useful to you in your research and guides you to which of the three services hold the records.
