For years I have been searching for my Welsh Ancestors with very little success. the Heritage project has connected me to the detailed Obit for my Great Great grandfather (David T. Evans) and enabled me to add priceless historic facts about he and his family.Many Many thanks Oliver Evans, Roswell, Ga.

I have been greatly impressed by the energy, enthusiasm, innovation, and attention to detail that has characterized the development of this multifaceted resource. These qualities are a reflection of its outstanding leadership team that includes two people who had a similar impact on the Welsh Society of Western New England, where I am active as board member and webmaster. Berwyn E. Jones (president; grants writer, and researcher) and Martha Davies (secretary; Welsh translator, researcher, and columnist) have kept me informed of their vision for new initiatives and have frequently sought ideas and support of their grant funded projects. Thus, even though I have not had the opportunity to travel there from my home in Massachusetts, I have come to greatly admire what the Great Plains Welsh Heritage Project has achieved in its mission to discover, preserve, interpret and celebrate the history of Welsh immigrants on the prairies of North America.

What a great place! It is so nice to have places in the community that can teach us about our history. There was a Welsh immigrant community in Wymore, Nebraska years ago and many of the residents of the area have roots in Wales. This museum reminds us of our history. Some even learn about their own family histories here! There are many exhibits of interest to children, this would be a perfect place for a family, school, or Scout field trip. There is a little movie theatre as well. Places that we can go to learn about our own or our community's history are few and far between, this place is a gem!

Great Plains Welsh Heritage Project brings together people and resources. It's for those who wish to investigate their Welsh roots and connect with present-day Wales. It is a model for community enrichment at all levels -- local, regional, national and international. Proud to be a supporter from Ohio. See you on Madog Day!!

I joined the GPWHP several years ago. I've visited their museum in Wymore, Nebraska. Took a seminar (offered by Martha Davies) on ancestry using Y Drych, a Welsh-American newspaper.
