Bill Jones, PhD, Cardiff University
On Saturday, March 27, 2010 Bill Jones, PhD, from Cardiff University spoke at the Welsh Heritage Centre. The subject was Finding the forgotten Margaret Evans Roberts (1833-1921), Pioneer Welsh American Writer and Womens' Rights Campaigner.
We held our St. Dwynwen's celebration on January 23. Terry Little, a singer from Plattsmouth, performed a small concert. We had approximately 35 in attendance, though weather kept many out-of-towners away.

R.D. Thomas. It is a goldmine for Welsh American genealogy.
