The best part about genealogy
is searching for ancestors
and finding friends.
Come to a place where we do both!

Interested in Welsh Heritage?
From Elly Barczak, President
Introducing the Welsh Society of Delaware as a cultural heritage group that may be of interest to anyone working on their Welsh genealogy here in Delaware. We are a fairly small group, founded in the 1970s by the late Peter Williams. Peter was a native of Wales who lived in Delaware for many years, teaching and tutoring at Del Tech and the University of Delaware.
Our focus is mainly the language and culture of Wales and the experience of Welsh-Americans. We offer a number of social events over the course of each year, including (but not limited to) a Welsh and Welsh-related video and book club as well as a weekly virtual meetup to study and speak the Welsh language. Our main public outreach event is our information booth at the annual Colonial Highland Gathering, held the third Saturday in May in Fair Hill, MD.
Membership in the Society is $10 per household per year and renews each March 1 (St. David's Day). Our website is currently under construction but we hope to have our upgrades completed soon so we can be up and running by the end of the year.
We welcome new members from all backgrounds -- there is no need to prove Welsh ancestry to join, but an interest in Wales or Welsh-related subjects is desirable. Contact us at email@example.com.
