Carmarthenshire / Re: Bontyberem??

Bontyberem is Pontyberem. The first letter has mutated from p to b. Pontyberem was part of Llangendeirne until 1919.

Quite the opposite.

We found it fascinating and surely the whole point of genealogy is 'going back and back'. These programmes have to be limited in their coverage so covering substantial areas of a tree can be difficult in the time they have. It was also good to see her using some of the basic methods of research herself (good for encouraging newbies) rather than being presented with everything by experts.

Never seen or heard of her before but she came across as a strong, 'real' Eastender and not  a victim to disability.

Holm (pronounced Ham) is on Orkney mainland. Westray and Papa Westray are two of the most northern islands in Orkney so nowhere near.

The Orkney Family History Society seems to have it available as a booklet.

Glamorganshire / Re: An Interesting Site about Swansea
« on: Monday 03 April 17 16:18 BST (UK)  »
Wind Street has changed a lot in some ways. Probably more watering holes per square inch than anywhere else in Swansea.

The current 31 Wind Street is a Franky and Benny's.

Wales / Re: Learning Welsh

I don't know if you have any welsh facebook friends but I guarantee you that our welsh teachers would be having fits if they saw how we chat to each other by text and Facebook and messenger - we tend to use the very informal welsh that we chat with day to day.   Although we all can and do use the "proper" welsh when there is a need to.

I have a relative who actually teaches Welsh and she uses 'joio' instead of mwynhau (enjoy).

Diolch Cas

Re James Thomas. He appears in three censuses, the ages all vary, and so does his place of birth - Cydweli (Kidwelly) is another alternative. He was certainly a nonconformist later in the 1800s so that is another issue.

Thanks again for looking.
