Celebration of Cynefin Project
Cynefin project will be celebrating the completion of a local project to study the history of the Dwygyfylchi before the railway came on Wednesday the 14th of June at 2:30 in the New Museum, at Penmaenmawr.
A booklet and walk leaflet will be launched, which includes the fruits of the work of the local history society into life in the area during nineteenth century, how the area developed as roads and railways were built.
There will also be a chance to see for the first time a new website which is being developed at The National Library of Wales to show all the tithe maps of Wales. This website will be using all the information which has been transcribed and geographically located by the volunteers of the Cynefin project, which has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Einion Gruffudd, the Manager of the Cynefin project, said:
"It will be a pleasure to launch the fruits of the work of the Penmaenmawr Historical Society and Museum.
This is the history of the local area written by the local people, a really valuable resource. It is part of the Cynefin project which has reconstructed a tithe map of Wales, - work done by hundreds of volunteers across Wales, who have spent thousands of hours transcribing tithe documents. I'm also looking forward to seeing people's reaction to the National Library's new website."
