The Clwyd Family History Society was founded in 1980 to encourage the study of genealogy and family history in north-east Wales, and to provide a forum for people who are interested in these subjects to meet, and to help each other. It now has approximately 1000 members worldwide.
Clwyd was abolished as an administrative county on 31st March 1996; and at the same time, four new unitary authorities came into being - these were named Flintshire, Denbighshire, Wrexham County Borough, and Conwy County Borough. However, the boundaries of the "new" Flintshire and Denbighshire are quite different from those of the historic (pre-1974) counties of the same name. Today Clwyd exists only as a ceremonial county.
The Committee of the Clwyd Family History Society decided that the Society should continue to cover the area of north-east Wales which comprised the now defunct county of Clwyd - i.e. the historic counties of Flintshire, Denbighshire and part of Merionethshire.
In June 2004 the Clwyd Family History Society opened a Resource Centre for members at Cefn Mawr, in the south of the County Borough of Wrexham.
The journal of the Society, Hel Achau, is published four times a year.
The Society holds monthly meetings at various venues throughout north-east Wales. There is no charge for admission, and the meetings are open to both Society members and non-members.
