I live in Pembrokeshire, S.W. Wales and am trying to locate memebers of my Welsh ancestry who emigrated to USA. They have typical Welsh surnames such as Thomas, Evans and Williams and I am particularly interested in Rev Thomas Evans 1885-1960 who was Pastor at the First  Welsh Baptist Church, Mahanoy City 1922-1960. Thank you for your informative website. Diolch yn fawr iawn.....Hedydd

Hello Steve,

I'm still enjoying my Suffolk Prince Edward Island research...and will eventually send a photo.

Hope all is well with you.

Happy New Year,

Good afternoon Steve.  We have an old photograph which we are told is of the crew of HMS Suffolk in Vladivostok dated 1918.

Hi Colin & Debra

I would very much like to see that please. Where did you get this?

Hi Anne

Thank you for taking the time to post in the Guestbook. It's a mystery to me why so few people leave comments there, especially as the Guestbook is one of the most visited page on the whole site!

Yes the site is very much still active, and I'm updating various sections and pages as and when new information becomes available.

Glad you enjoy the site so much. If you have any photographs of Suffolk PEI, please send them to this email address and I'll upload them to the site (with appropriate credits)

Once again, thanks for your kind words.

Hello again..I should have said more!

I am enjoying this site so much! We have lived in Suffolk PEI since 1977 (renting various homes until we bought land and built our own in 1979) and have been doing research into the area off and on since then.

And back at it now for this reason. We live on the homestead of Noah Harper (son of Roger, one of the original settlers from Suffolk Eng.) We love this piece of land, and the community. When we bought the land the orignial house was still "sort of standing" and I spent a lot of time exploring the old site. Over the years the house fell in. We have saved bits and pieces of it, including several boards. From those boards we have made some beautiful tables for my husband and me, our 3 children and our grandson. It feels very special to have these wonderful pieces of Suffolk history. I believe the wood is hemlock from original growth trees cut on this property. I am trying to confirm this and that question has lead me to finding out all kinds of other information! This site has been the very best! And I thank you for all of your careful research.

I see there have not been many entries in the guest book for a while. I hope someone will see this one!

Cheers from,

Anne in Suffolk, PEI
