GLASCOED PEOPLE AND PLACES

PURPOSE OF SITE

To collate and share information relating to the history of Glascoed, Monmouthshire. Census, parish and civil registration records are included along with a wealth of other data drawn from contributors (many thanks to them!), newspaper reports, electoral registers and other sources.

In the fullness of time, I hope that the project continues to grow as information comes in – ideally with lots of stories and pictures – if you can help, please contact me.

NAVIGATING THE SITE

The information has been collated into different sub-sections:

HOUSES, PEOPLE, NEWSPAPERS, RECORDS and VILLAGE HISTORY.

There are also some interesting LINKS.

If you’re a first time visitor, or just trying to find your way around the new look of the site, why not start with the ABOUT and UPDATES sections, to get a feel for the site and the latest additions.

If you’ve visited regularly, then the place to start is UPDATES - since everything new is sign-posted there.

If you want something specific, why not try the search boxes in the corners (top and bottom).

The buttons at the top should help you get around the site.

It’s also worth visiting the NAMES and SURNAMES databases, where I’ve tried to link many of the people of Glascoed (particularly pre-1900) together - you’d be surprised how many are related to each other! You’ll find links to these on the PEOPLE pages.

I’d love to hear from you with feedback, stories to include on the site, photos or really anything related to the history, people and places of the village please CONTACT ME.

MAJOR DISCLAIMER - please don’t just rely on the records on this site for proving links to your family. I try to avoid assumptions and transcription errors, but there is always the possibility of errors creeping in. If a particular family or individual interests you, please ask me for the sources of my information, which I will be delighted to email to you. It may sometimes be advisable to order certificates or other information to fully prove a link.

I freely admit that I have sometimes linked families that are not directly linked to me based on 80 or 90% probability - check my sources and draw your own conclusions. To fully prove some of the links would take up time and money that I don’t have!
