We intend to produce a research guide for Minority Ethnic history in Glamorgan. The guide will outline resources available to researchers, provide examples of records, include a glossary of terms, and signpost relevant collections held elsewhere. Official and institutional records, such as police, court and hospital records, will be included, along with records of community organisations and personal archival material.
Experts in research methodologies and Minority Ethnic history will be engaged to design and advise on the project. Our project officer is overseeing the project, recruiting, training and supervising volunteers and paid researchers. Currently, there are few minority ethnic people researching diverse ethnicity history in Wales. In order to encourage students and others to engage, it is proposed to employ four researchers to examine specific collections.
The guide will be available bilingually on Glamorgan Archives’ website. Publishing digitally will ensure it remains current as it will be easy to respond to feedback and update, and will aid distribution through circulation by email.
