Photo: Women of Wales

June 11, 2012

This photo took my eye in Issue 25 of  Tracing Your Family History Magazine.

There is a great article in the magazine on Tracing Your Welsh Roots by Beryl Evans, Family Historian at the  National Library of Wales. I was immediately drawn to it,  as my brick wall is my TAYLOR family from Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales. I’m always on the lookout for any information I can find that might help me solve the mystery of the elusive JOHN TAYLOR’s death. There is great info in this article that I need to follow up, hopefully soon.  But my attention was immediately drawn to the photo above, of a group of Welsh ladies.  I love this photo, and I wonder if my great great grandmother MARTHA LLOYD would have looked similar to these ladies. They look very strong, stern women indeed. Everyone who knows me knows that it’s impossible to get me to smile for the camera. After seeing this photo, I’m wondering if my usual stern look is just in my genes and beyond my control. As I’ve been insisting for years.
