'Exists to support the oldest independent railway in the world (being founded by an Act of Parliament in 1832) – now a historic and world-class tourist attraction ... The Area Groups of the FR Society have performed vital roles for the railway since the earliest days of preservation. They coordinate transport to the railway, organise volunteer working parties, promote the FR in their region and raise vital funds. Many of them also organise meetings for local members and FR supporters to get their "Ffestiniog fix" when not able to get to North Wales.'

'The Society was founded in 1980 to bring together the many people interested in Family History. It caters for those with Gwynedd ancestry and we would be happy to help anyone in need of assistance with their research.'

'We are an established Society founded in 1939 and are interested in all aspects of the history of the former County of Merioneth which dates from 1284 and became part of Gwynedd under the 1974 Welsh counties reorganisation. Our interests include archaeology, buildings, family history, folklore, literature and all the various subjects which are generally called "antiquities" ... We arrange field trips and lectures, publish an annual Journal, and support local historical projects.'

'We pride ourselves on applied research at Wrexham Glyndŵr University – that is research which makes a difference to industry and communities regionally and nationally. ... We hold a series of professorial lectures and research seminars throughout the year which are often open to the public.'
