We made an early start by scanning the cover of the programme for the unveiling of the Dolgellau war memorial. Studying this on a large screen enabled us to discuss the implications involved of placing similar items onto our website. It also helped us to start formulating a protocol for our work and gave everyone the opportunity to contribute ideas and comments. We feel we have grown in self-confidence and vision. Catherine James spoke to us about her father, Jenkin W. James, using several documents and certificates to illustrate his painful experiences as a Conscientious Objector. Mr James subsequently became a widely respected head teacher of Bala Grammar School for Boys.

We will continue to develop our work, supporting the archives and encouraging people to deposit original documents in our collection there.
