Visiting Blaenau Tywi from Parramata, New South Wales, Australia is Jan Roe and her cousin Vicki. Jan’s grandparents were buried in Seion Chapel, Rhandirmwyn.
Jan also visited Troedrhiwfer, Tynyddol, Whitehall Isaf, Penybont, Broncwrt Cottage and Maescaerhyg where her ancestors used to live, most of the time employed as miners in the Nantymwyn Lead Mines. The families were the Lloyd’s of Maesllwynfuddai and the Thomas family from Penybont.
A special thanks to the Stone family in Troedrhiwfer for the warm welcome.
