Ah! I'm ahead of you there!!!

I made my own for the Gloucestershire FHS meeting.  Mind you I would rather have a nice shiny metal one.

The only question now is, if the sun shines where do I stick it??

I know - on my sunhat!

Having read Berlin-Bob's post about badges - I've made one (I watched a lot of Blue Peter when I was little...), but couldn't manage to make it quite as fancy as Bob's. But still...look out for it!

I was hoping to call down saturday morning, but it now looks doubtful.

If Jan or anybody reads this in time, would appreciate any advice on where my GGG Grandparents may be buried. My 2 G Grandparents Oliver & Martha Lewis are buried at St Erfyls, Llanerfyl, but Oliver's parents David & Sarah are not, despite being born, bred & dead in Llanefyl.

Does another old cemetery exist in the area where I can be directed? Does an index of the area's cemeteries exist collectively?

For the record David died around 1875 & Sarah 1882, so a headstone 'should' be around I would have thought.

Any help on this greatly appreciated.
Lewis - Minera, Denbighshire & Llanerfyl, Montgomeryshire.<br />Davies - Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd, Denbighshire.<br />Williams - Llanynys, Denbighshire.<br />Roberts - Cerrigydrudion, Denbighshire.<br />Clark(e) & Price - Wrecsam, Denbighshire.
