Blwyddyn newydd dda i bawb a phob hwyl ar y chwilio a diolch i Trystan a Sarah am ofalu amdanom ni. :)

Hoping for the voice (or hand) of experience to help with the above; the photo, professional, monochrome, about 1920, is of a large group amidst which some of my relatives may be. My hope is that there may be some information on the back of the photo, but I don't want to risk damage without advice. The cardboard mount is soft, not very thick, and of a fairly coarse weave. Feel sure that someone has done this successfully; any advice gratefully received.  :) (Enjoying my first hat)

The Lighter Side / Brecon town (Powys) - help with an old recitation please
« on: Wednesday 12 September 18 23:31 BST (UK)  »
My aunt, Brecon born and bred, used to recite, years ago, some comic verses based on Brecon place-names which I have almost completely forgotten; the only words I remember are: " ... was so narrow it fell into Old Bill's barrow." I would dearly love to recover the verses.

Cymraeg - Welsh Language / "Y" ar enw tref Gymreig a "The" yn Lloegr
« on: Friday 31 August 18 00:12 BST (UK)  »
Mae llawer o enwau trefi/pentrefi Cymreig yn dangos bod "Y" wedi bod (neu'n dal i fod) ar ddechrau'r enwau - Y Borth, Y Bont Faen, Y Drenewydd, Y Felinheli, Y Waun ayyb, ond ni allaf feddwl am enwau ar drefi Seisnig sy'n dechrau efo "The" i gyfateb. Tybed fedr rhywun rhoi enghraifft neu ddwy imi?

Diolch Geraint am ein hatgoffa ni ein bod ni cystal a neb  :)

The Lighter Side / "Ignoring" Ancestry hints
« on: Saturday 21 July 18 00:27 BST (UK)  »
I have found, from hints, several useful public trees which include my easily-identifiable ancestor, but some trees are offered which have people of the right names but from other places; I have tried to dispose of the irrelevant trees by clicking on the 'select tree' box then on the 'cancel' box, but the tree stays up. I know Ancestry has another 'ignore' function which works well, but it doesn't seem to be an option in this respect. Can some kind Chatter help me to stop meeting the irrelevant trees again and again?
