Nonconformity in Wales

Zoom talk
Are records relating to your Welsh ancestors missing from Parish Registers? The reason could be that they were chapel members. The 1851 Religious Census in Wales revealed that almost 80% of the population worshipped as part of non-conformist congregations.

In this talk, Gill Thomas examines online and offline resources available in researching Welsh non-conformity, be it Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Unitarian, Congregationalist or Society of Friends.

Gill tells us how non-conformist worship in Wales has been a feature of Welsh culture for hundreds of years: open-air revival meetings; song and culture celebrated at Gymanfa Ganu and the Eisteddfod; the chapel has been the core of many communities in a uniquely Welsh way. Understanding how our Welsh ancestors worshipped is an essential key to our family histories.

You can also join Gill for a Question and Answer session at the end of the talk.
