Archifdy Ceredigion Archives
acc VARIOUS ACCESSIONSRef: MUS
The Museum Collection is a varied assortment of small collections which came to Ceredigion Archives from the county Museum. Most of them were originally donated to the Museum in the days of Dyfed (Dyfed was the county created during the local government reorganization in 1974 from the old counties of Cardiganshire, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire; it split back into its component parts in 1996).
Ceredigion Museum was more strongly associated with the old county of Cardiganshire and many people preferred to donate items there rather than to Dyfed Archives, the headquarters of which were located in Carmarthen.
After the reinstatement of Cardiganshire (renamed Ceredigion) in 1996 and the creation of the County Record Office in Aberystwyth, the documents were transferred here from the Museum.
