Welcome to the Archives

Ceredigion Archives is the record office for the county formerly known as Cardiganshire or (in Welsh) Sir Aberteifi.

We collect and preserve documents about the history of Cardiganshire and make them available for research.

About Ceredigion Archives

Ceredigion Archives was originally established in 1974 as the third office of the Dyfed Archives Service. It was then known as the Cardiganshire Area Record Office. In 1996 at local government re-organisation the record office was re-launched as Ceredigion Archives. It remains one of the smaller county record offices. Official and private documents relating to the history of the county are held here.
