Tony, It's Donald from the SEAWELL here, I am trying to get a message to you to ask if you have any software that you can take out with you to install on my new laptop,It's not brand new but ideal for my study. It's a Dell CPI Latitude P2 233mhz, so if you have anything that may be usefull, that would be great- excel etc. Rumour has it that the ship is going into Aberdeen on Saturday morning! See you whenever, weather not looking too promising for Thursday. My e-mail address is Barrahead1@aol.com

This must be the best website in Wales!! Rhiw, my happiest days were spent at Penycaerau Farm which was then farmed by the Jones family Tom, Nel his wife, Nels brother Wil Hughes and Tom & Nels two children Huw and Dorothy. We stayed in their house for two family holidays, then when my father died the Jones family invited me back for the summer holidays - Six weeks of bliss!! The time spent with them influenced my life as this city boy from Manchester took up farm work, which has given me over 30 very happy years. I remember Evans the Policeman and his kindness, one day that started wet I walked to Aberdaron coat and all seeing my burden when the sun shone he took my coat and hung it behind his in the pub doorway saying "it will be safe there boy" Once abain well done I think I may become a regular visitor. Best wishes Peter Hall

May I be the latest visitor to leave a comment in the guest book... Rhiw.com is a website that I find myself coming back to time and time again, the old photographs of Rhiw I find to be very interesting and of course the more updated photos are very well taken, the research into this site must of taken much of your time and I'm sure there was a great deal of pleasure involved, the history and the life of our distant relatives who we must never forget is being brought back to us in Rhiw.com it only makes me feel like wanting to go back in time and play a part in the makeup of our rural past, Our distant relatives went through very hard and desperate times and somehow still found the will to carry on, (today's people would never be able to) I often think that we should all find it in our hearts to remember the hardship that our ancestors had to endure, I also find that it only takes little imagination to feel the life of our past people. I hope this website will continue to grow and that the local people of Rhiw will come foreward and help you in every way they can to make Rhiw.com even better. All the very best.

Thank you for a very pleasurable hour browsing the website. I will return! I was delighted to find a photo of my grandfather, Richard Jones - Dic Lon Las - on the site, and the accounts from Daniel Rowlands, my great-great-uncle. My family and I have just returned home to Manchester from our annual pilgrimage to Rhiw, having spent a week at Tan-y-Foel (where my father Gwynfor used to worship in its days as a Methodist chapel). Thank you for such a loving website which does justice to the beauty and history of the village and its people. Susan Wildman Evans.

We recently bought Sea View - The Post Office and already love Rhiw. The website is fantastic. Delighted to finally see a picture of Elsie as we've heard so much about her. We hope she would approve of us living in her home and that she would forgive the little changes we're making. The Williams family

Very good website. We are frequent visitors to the Aberdaron area and have been for nearly 40 years. We love the area and the friendliness of the people. Mike has many digital photos of local views. If you would like to use some for your website, you'd be welcome. (m.pinckard@zoom.co.uk). Thanks, The Wainwrights and the Pinckards.

Just had a look at your website, I ignored the History, People, old photographs, and the labour of love that went into it, and went straight for the hard to find, Adults only (grown ups) jokes and cartoon section, which I found to be in very bad taste, (but well worth an article in my newspaper) after all if I say good things about you, then our readers won't be interested, and we must try and increase our circulation, other wise we will be out of a job. Regards, Wayne Kerr, Sub-editor, (subnormal) Canary & Dumbo Herald.

Found the web-site almost by accident-I was re-living some old memories of my seafaring days on the Blue Funnel web-site and then had a tour of this wonderful site. Now I need to visit the area again to re-live some childhood memories! A wonderful site, and worth the time I've spent on it. I'll be back! Thanks for sharing the area with the unfortunates who live in less beautiful areas!
