About Me: What is your interest in or connection to Wales?

My great-grandparents, William Powell and Maria Lewis, were born in South Wales and last lived in Penclawdd, situated on the north shore of the Gower Penninsula, in Glamorgan County before immigrating to the U.S. I am the first generation to not yet return to Cymru for a visit. I hope to rectify that in the next couple of years.

  • Thank you Harold and for your kind comments about my blog and Celia. I really appreciate them. 

  • Thanks on the shortcut tip on windows, but still will not work on the puzzle page on my laptop lol

  • I laughed when reading what you said about frogs.  The human baby is not large, usually, but it is amazing how much work is required in rearing it. I expect this is why we bond for life with our children.

  • Hello from Maryland, USA, Ms. Morgan. I visited Wales in 2006 and it literally changed my life. I'm reading everything I can get my hands onto about Wales. Both sets of my grandparents are from Wales and I'm planning my next trip there. This may sound like a silly question but is there are particular region of the country that the Morgan family name originates? Thanks.

  • Thanks, Harold about the name. My grandson is Harry and it is a family name.  

  • Hallo, Harold, from a cold frosty Haverfordwest. I've noticed on your page that you have roots in Penclawdd. I went to Gowerton Grammar School, about three miles from Penclawdd. I now live about fifty miles from there.

    Whilst I have no American relatives my husband's uncle went to Pennsylvania, in the twenties and taught music in Sharpesville High School. His son John, who came over to visit us twice, lived in Colorado Springs.

    (I apologise for calling you Howell in my reply last time.)

    Hwyl, Gill

  • Hallo,Harold,

    I read your blog about calories with interest.  I'm always trying not to overeat. A small sweet before a meal takes my appetite away! (Not to be recommended on health grounds, though.

    Nice to meet you, Gill
