Cardiganshire Motor Vehicles

I’ve put this on my ‘wish list’ for my research trip to Wales next year.  I have many photographs of my Aberystwyth families standing beside, sitting astride, or driving various vehicles.


Although I’m guaranteed not to find “this” particular car, it would be really cool to find other family vehicles listed in the records.  It seems that the records contain name of the vehicle owner and address information, along with details of the vehicles registered.  Of course any records under 30 years old are not available to the public.

I know I’ve said this before, but the Ceredigion Archives is a ‘must visit’ for anyone researching Cardiganshire.  The link I’ve provided, takes you to the catalogue of records held at the archives.  From local government records, to private collections, shipping and harbour records, this resource is invaluable.

How I’m going to divide my time between Ceredigion Archives , the National Library of Wales , and visiting cemeteries remains to be seen!!
