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 .

Editor: “Powys Cronicl”: Jenny Caines:                                            

Address: The Old Manse, Scarr, Lydeard-St-Lawrence, Taunton, Somerset TA4 3RH

Members will notice that the latest Cronicl has a slightly different look, returning to an earlier format with the familiar dragon logo at the head of each page.

A lot of interesting articles have been submitted, so thank you to everyone who has sent in. There can never be too many, so please keep them coming in, especially if they relate to your own family history and research. Naming names can often be so helpful to other readers just setting out, or indeed those who have come to a brick wall in their research. You might have the answers they need!

Here are just a few of the subjects lined up for future magazines:

The second part of “The Lewis Letters” – letters written by the Rev Benjamin Morris of Brecon 1881-1893 to his niece in Zanesville, Ohio. Translated from Welsh. This should now appear in Cronicl 103, April 2018.

The life of Margaret Price of Porthmorddwr, Breconshire is included in the December 2017 Cronicl, number 102.

The Griffiths of Madoc: three Breconshire brothers who emigrated to Canada: coming soon.

In the December Cronicl (no.102) : A substantial  article on DNA testing written by someone who has been there and done it. The author writes in depth about the benefits and pitfalls as well as discussing options, such as which tests are most suitable, depending on what information you would like to know, and points out that test results will very often set you on a path of research demanding a considerable amount of time and patience!
