Expanding the article
Please, could someone who knows the area and its history tell us something about the link between Caerphilly County Borough and the County of Glamorgan.
I know the town of Caerphilly was in the historical county of Glamorgan before 1974 (when Glamorgan was not an "historical county" but a "county"). I know that since 1996 the town of Caerphilly and a good number of surrounding settlements are in Caerphilly County Borough. But what happened in between? Was there a change of boundaries between Glamorgan, Gwent and Monmouthshire in 1974? Was there a further change of boundaries in 1996?
As a provider of information for a worldwide website dealing with family history, I need to be able to trace settlements through the administrations to which they belonged. 1974 was 46 years ago--in family history that is a generation and a half. Looking at it from now (2016) the events of 1974 may seem a long time ago, but in the course of history of a place, it is only yesterday. Please think about those of us who have never lived in the area, but who want to tie details of its geographical evolution together.
