- Mark EvansSays: May 16th, 2011 at 13:10 pmHello,I’m researching material for a new book and would love the oppertunity to talk to someone who can provide me with a little background knowledge of the area, its indutrial heritage, myths and legends, as well as its current developments and artistic focus. I’d be extremely pleased if someone could email me in response, with a view to setting up a telephone conversation, or meeting at the public house. I visit Cil Y Cwm regularly and have been charmed by the beauty of the village and its surrounding countryside.Thanks in advance,Mark

- Bill WiliamsSays: March 21st, 2011 at 0:25 amBack in 08 attempted to make a Theophilus connection. Noted a city councilman named Tom Theophilus .Never got any responses. Seems like different type of Welsh name and feel there may be some connection. My GG Grandmother Rachael James Williams, widow of Wm. Williams remarried a Wm. Theophilus and had one son Timothy Theophilus who came to Us but returned to Wales to marry a Williams. Timothy lived and died in Luzerne Cty Pa..Tom was still on your Council in 2010..Could any body contact him to see if we have a connection?????Please..Thank You Wm.R,Williams

- Megan ThomasSays: February 9th, 2011 at 20:43 pmA very enjoyable site.My roots are in Cilycwm as my grandmother Mary Davies was born there about 1876.She then married James Williams and lived in Gellyfechan farm which has long gone.They moved to Siloh and they are both buried in Siloh Chapel graveyard.They lived at the time in Tan y Capel.There are also other family members buried here and on visiting Siloh was disappointed to hear that the Chapel had closed about 4 years ago.I wonder if there are any descendants in the area or anybody who has any information regarding the chapel records. Diolch yn fawr Megan
- Meriel BoydSays: February 8th, 2011 at 13:02 pmTo Alwyne E. LoydI have found the website – more specifically, your piece, ‘Lloyd and Loyd 1690-1990′ – by searching for Lewis Loyd, funder of St. John the Evangelist’s church, Cheetham, Manchester, as part of a PhD project I am doing with the University of Manchester into Anglican churches built between 1870 and 1902 in the then Deanery of Manchester, specifically those funded entirely by a single private donor, or a single family.If I were to send you a stamped addressed envelope (I would obviously need a postal address; perhaps there’s one on the website I could use?), would you be willing to send me a hard copy of whatever you know of Lewis Loyd and his parents? The reason I ask is that it is not quite done to use an internet source as a reference in a work of scholarship, and this could be a way round that problem. I would, naturally, in my thesis give you due credit for help received.Thank you in anticipation,Meriel Boyd
- ShanSays: January 26th, 2011 at 14:00 pmElizabeth Thomas b.1840 in Cilycwm, daughter of Thomas, weaver, and Anne, gave birth to a daughter Mary Jane in 1863/4. She married my great grandfather David Williams of Resolven in 1865 and Mary Jane lived with them as Williams on the census forms. She died in Resolven in 1939 but I am trying to check on the time and place of her birth and hopefully, the father.Very grateful if anyone has any clues. Many thanks.

I am researching my family tree. My great-great grandfather, Rees or Reese Davies was born in Cylicum about 1828. He married Margaret A, ___________(from Glascow Scotland) in 1857 and immediately thereafter they immigrated to the US settling in Wild Rose, Wisconsin.. He was a farmer. Any assistance about where I might find records relating to marriage, birth and other family history would be deeply appreciated. I am also interested in the historical reasosns why numerous Welsh people immigrated to the Wild Rose, Wisconsin area in the 1840’s and 1850’s. Thank you in advance for any information you might be able to provide.
