We have to date
several hundred scanned images; they include maps; sale posters;
receipts; newspaper cuttings; poetry, more than 1200 photos and
various other documents relating to our area, this we have accumulated
by asking people of the area for loan of photos and documents
for a short period, these were then scanned and added to our digital
collection. The majority of which have been printed and displayed
at our Open Days. We are very grateful to all who have contributed
photos, documents and information; it is through their generosity
that we have been successful as a Society. We are interested in
gathering information of all aspects of life in our area, farms;
inns and public houses, private houses and the people who lived
in them, Meigan Fair, held in Eglwyswrw every November where farm
animals were traded, was known throughout the land, we haven’t
been able to find any photographs of the event even though a professional
photographer was in attendance at times it was said. We have information
on churches, chapels and cemeteries - Bethabara, Baptist Chapel;
Penygroes Independent Chapel; and St Cristiolus Church, Eglwyswrw,
and we can obtain information for other chapels and cemeteries
in our area. We have a special interest, - life in the area during
the war years, and especially of those who served in the forces
during that time. If anyone has any old photos of the area to
add to our collection or any history of Eglwyswrw or of the surrounding
area that you are willing to share with us, we would be grateful
if you could contact us, and if we can help anyone who is interested
in our area we will do so.
