Question #1: I am no longer able to view records for the parishes of Gabalfa and Glyntaff (Glyn-taf). How can I locate these records?
Answer #1: FamilySearch captured a small number of images from the Parish Registers of Gabalfa and Glyntaff and created related indexes. FamilySearch has agreed to remove the images and indexes of these records from FamilySearch.org due to a miscommunication from the record custodian. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Question #2: I am unable to find records for some of the parishes in Glamorgan. How can I locate these records?
