Any records prior to 1837, please contact Carmarthenshire Archives Service.
I would also advise you that our indexes are established for the purposes of registration duties, and are not tied to pedigrees or families. We will not know for example, whether a person had any other children, or whether they had a brother or sister etc.
The fact that a person lived in a particular area or that he/she was buried in a certain place does not mean that they were born there or that they died there.
