Articles, photographs and fillers are sent in by members of the Society for inclusion in “Cronicl.” We are always looking for articles of genealogical interest .

Already we are well into 2017: another year is upon us, and a special one as it sees the production of the 100th Cronicl, some 37 years after the first. Cronicl number 100 includes some items that appeared in issues 1 to 30, but are definitely worthy of being seen again. By my calculations – don’t depend on them! – members who have a membership number higher than 1000 will have joined after these articles were published and will not have seen them anyway – unless of course they have purchased back issues.

There are also plenty of fresh items: there is the winning competition entry entitled ‘Richard Turner of Trewern’, a very moving story of courage and determination. Then there’s part two of Kurt Ockert’s story: his years as a prisoner of war. In  part three of Kurt’s story, coming soon, he writes about his life in Wales and pays tribute to the kindness of the people of Presteigne.

Thank you to everyone who has sent in articles, but  there can never be too many. Please keep them coming.
