Wales select birth and baptisms 1541 -1907 Ancestry
« on: Saturday 18 February 17 18:14 GMT (UK) »
Ever so often I have a go at one or  my brick walls.   This afternoon a possible has turned up in Wales select births and baptisms.  This is my first encounter with this set of data.
There is no image and no dates, it just lists names of (what I assume) father mother and child.
Where should I go looking for more information?
Thank you

It's a text only collection.  Using the location given you can search the actual parish record for further info at the local RO

 No location given, will have to search with just the names but they are common names so I doubt if I will have more luck. Thank for taking the time to reply.

Many of the 'select' collection are extracted from familysearch. 
Does the record have a film number as you can check the possible parishes here by just inserting the film number

Hi,

Findmypast has some of the Welsh Parish records (baptisms, marriages and burials)... with images of the actual registers.  Worth checking to see if FindMyPast has records from the county that you are interested in.  (My Welsh side of the family is from Flintshire and Denbighshire - I have found lots of parish register images on FindMyPast  :) :))

I have looked at findmypast before but I do not have a subscription at the moment.
The brick wall is Palfrey Rowlands born  about 1765, I do not know where!
In 1794 he was with his wife in Caernarvon. The 1841 census has him born out of county.
According to his son's baptism his wife was Elizabeth.
Thank you for your interest
