Miscellaneous


Powys Digital History Projekt
http://history.powys.org.uk/history/intro/menu3.html]
Quote from: website
The local history of six communities in the large mid-Wales county of Powys
are covered by this earlier section of our website. These pages were produced
during a one year project which ended in May 1999.
Our newer linked site on local history for schools (but of interest to all !)
was added to until Easter 2002.
Quote from: Kazza
This is a fascinating site,  you are unlikely to find your missing ancestors here,  but it all makes interesting reading and has some great early photos.  A lot of it is aimed at schools but is still useful for those with an interest in the areas covered.
