Administrative / Biographical History

Gwynedd County Council was established in 1974 as the local authority for Gwynedd, which from 1974 until 1996 comprised the old counties of Anglesey, Caernarfonshire and Merionethshire. Some of the administration of Anglesey in that period was conducted by Ynys Môn Borough Council, but some matters such as social services, education, libraries and archives were dealt with by Gwynedd County Council. In 1996, Anglesey ceased to be a part of Gwynedd, when the functions of Gwynedd County Council in Anglesey were assumed by Ynys Môn County Council. Gwynedd County Council accumulated papers of the Social Services Department of the predecessor Anglesey County Council.
