GLASCOED

Cathy’s farmA fascinating short documentary on the late Miss Catherine Sainsbury’s Alpaca farm at Ty Mawr, Glascoed (2007), reflecting on how the village is changing also.


Llanbadoc Community council web-site. Mainly concerned with present day Glascoed and the surrounding villages, although there is a fair bit of interest, including a page on the village and some interesting local walks with maps and historical references. Worth a good browse in general though, since there is other relevant info included.

WELSH ANCESTORS

Mongenes: A Monmouthshire group is now operating and many ex-MONFH group members have joined this. A very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable bunch with varied interests in Monmouthshire families. There is a main website and a Yahoo group are both highly recommended.

Mike John published a huge amount of information on Monmouthshire families, was instrumental in the MONFH Yahoo Group and helped many people over 15 years or so to make progress with their family histories. This genealogical information is unfortunately no longer all online, although the Mongenes group has published much of this information and more subsequently.


Arnold family: Huge resource on the Arnold family from Norman times to 17th century in Monmouthshire. Jim Arnold (“James Elliot Arnold”) put this together in the late 1990s, early 2000s. He used to run an Arnold family website, but my link to this no longer works. This is another place where Jim’s work on his family line is indexed.
