The main purpose of the Forum is to act as an umbrella group, bringing together all the societies and organisations who are involved with local history, heritage and family history within the county of Ceredigion (formerly Cardiganshire), with the aim of raising the profile of local history within the county.

The forum provides a route for the member organisations to publicise their activities to each other, through the website and other means.

The Forum also arranges open meetings, usually a couple of times a year, with guests who speak on a range of interesting topics. The meetings give members from different organisations an opportunity to meet and talk face to- face and to exchange ideas and experiences.

If you or your organisation would like to join the Forum please complete this application form (PDF) and send it, with the subscription (currently £10 p.a. for groups, £5 p.a. for individuals, due 1st January each year) to the Treasurer
