Great Plains Welsh Heritage Project
January 19, 2011
The Great Plains Welsh Heritage Project hosts a biennial festival where folks from around the country come together to celebrate our Welsh Heritage. We participate in traditional Welsh activities, singing and dancing. We have guest speakers who relate tales of Welsh settlers and Welsh culture. Our 4th Welsh Heritage Festival will be held Oct 7-10, 2011 and we hope to see you there!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
meeting folks in person who previously were just names in my mother's childhood stories. As an avid genealogist, it's been a pleasure to meet extended family members and help others find their lost relatives "across the pond."
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
ask that all young Americans with Welsh ancestry join us in our quest to celebrate and document their ancestors' immigration to this country.
Board Member & I have built a database of Welsh American settlers from across the great plains and continue to add to it.
