Journal 135 

The Centre Insert contains Standing Order and Gift Aid forms as well as information about our Ask the Experts sessions at our October Fair.  

There has been a good response to this Journal’s theme request, for stories about immigration into Glamorgan, so many thanks to all contributors.  We have items about the melting pot of Merthyr Tydfil in the 19th century by Carolyn Jacob, Maura Bennett gives her family’s story from Holland, and there is an early and tragic death in Barrie Jones’ family, and by contrast  some heartening evacuees’ stories in the Garw Valley.  There are accounts of murder and suspicious death, and some searching for lost and mysterious relatives, and even some Bible stories!

Nick Davey asks about Hiring Fairs, Richard Ollerton writes of Bethany Chapel, St Mary St, Cardiff and its records, and Rhian Diggins tells of the flourishing society of the Scots in Cardiff.

All this plus the usual Book Reviews and Help Wanted columns, so all in all, a good read, reflecting the vast range of interesting people and events that we all have within the Society.

Please keep those interests alive and tell us more!! December’s issue is an open one, all topics welcomed, and if you have any ideas for future themes, or thoughts about any of the subjects depicted, then do not hesitate to get in touch.

Have a good ‘Indian’ summer, if we are lucky enough to get one in September.

The deadline for the December Journal is 20 October.   

Please send your articles, snippets of information etc to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before the cut off date.
