for help with our site
  Our grateful thanks are due to....

We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who gave help, support and advice on this project, which resulted from a great deal of planning and funding negotiations by Gordon Reid, former County Archivist.

Special thanks to Anthony Sawyer, Records Manager, who oversaw the final stages of the Project.

We are especially indebted to Lynwen Davies, Gwen Evans and Eurwen Booth, who translated material for the pages in Welsh.

We are also grateful to Nick Talbott, Powys County Councilís Head of Strategic IT, who gave us invaluable advice on many of the technical aspects of the Project.

Maldwyn Pryce, John Evans, and Martin Williams of the Education Department also supported the project in many ways, not least in promoting it to schools across Powys.

Emma Conway, the Senior Tourism Officer, helped with information on the communities in the present day.

  Thanks are also due to Tudfil Adams, the County Librarian, for her support, and to the museum curators and their staff across Powys: Eva Bredsdorff, Curator of Powysland Museum, Rachel Sholl, Curator of Radnorshire Museum, David Moore, Curator of Brecknock Museum, and Alison Hembrow of the South Wales Borderersí Museum.
Not only did they throw open their collections to us, they also gave us much valuable advice, ideas and information throughout the Project.

Likewise, we must thank Catherine Richards, Archives Manager, and Helen Burns, Archives Assistant, for their help in the Powys County Archives Office.


Many thanks as well for their invaluable comments to the teachers on our monitoring group: Davena Hooson of Ysgol Trefonnen, Nigel Hughes of Ysgol Rhiwbechan, Janet Munday and Becky Ackhill of Rhayader C.P. School, Satu Haikaila Rees of Nantmel C.P. School, and Christine Purdy of Hafren C.P. School.

We were also very grateful to everyone, children, teachers, parents and others, who sent us comments and encouragement during the course of the Project. Thanks also to many members of local history societies in the county who offered help and material.

Finally, thanks to Anna Page and Gwen Middleton of the Modern Records Centre (next door to the Gwalia website factory !) for their help and support!
