05.12.2007: Update from
Here are some updated
photos of the cottages and the latest news from Coulsontown:
The Museum in Delta has
been chosen to take part in a pilot program for heritage
tourism in York County, PA, which is a great opportunity.
There's a great deal to be done, however, since the
Museum has been sort of a "mom-and-pop" effort over the years.
Sorry to learn that Pen yr orsedd is at a standstill, but they mustn't lose
heart! Things will work out for them eventually.
02.03.2009: Another update from Delta PA
Annwyl Cyfeillion (I
hope I spelled that right...)
At long last, I've managed
to get us on the Web!! Dic Baskwill - our Chapel minister
- has looked it over and pronounced it a good start.
Now I need you, my dear Welsh friends, to check it
out and let me know what you think... whether I've
done us (and you) any justice. It's only a beginning,
but finally folks can see some of why we're passionate
about promoting our Welsh heritage in Delta. Well -
their Welsh heritage anyway, since I still can't find
my Jenkins ancestors' place of origin...
I do welcome any and all
suggestions and feedback.
