What is Carnarvon Traders?
Carnarvon Traders is a website created to indulge my passion in the town's long and rich history, and also to help Family and Local Historians with their research. The aim of Carnarvon Traders is to bring genealogical and historical data online, and available to all.
What will I find on Carnarvon Traders?
Anything and everything related to the town's trading history, plus a few other things which, while not trade related, I find interesting enough to include. The various sections, which are linked to on the left, are briefly described below.
On this page you will find all the latest updates listed, together with a brief description where appropriate.

This is the main section of the site, with a complete list of all the trades, and a link to their individual pages. This is where the Trade Directories are to be found, but please note that they have been split up into the individual trades. You will also find the site search facility & Guestbook links here. These also appear at the bottom of this page.
