A list of some published sources of Genealogy and History for Cardiff and Glamorgan, has been provided by Bob Sanders

Cardiff and the Vale--Will Transcripts. Based on the David Jones of Wallington Collection at Cardiff Central Library. David Jones was an antiquarian of the 19th century who collected a huge amount of material on Glamorgan (and some other areas). Much of this collection is at Cardiff Library, with some at the National Library, Aberystwyth. He transcribed the salient genealogical information from many Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan wills from Llandaff Probate Registry and Prerogative Court of Canterbury from 16th to early 19th centuries and various MIs and PRs too, as well as miscellaneous other things that took his fancy. Bob Sanders has collected quite a lot of the genealogical data from the transcripts of Cardiff & Vale Wills. It is just the index to the database that is online.
