Dear Secretary of Cymdeithas Hanes Blaenpennal,
I write to invite you to become involved in an exciting project that will make part of the First World War’s secret heritage which is held at The National Library of Wales (NLW) accessible to the people of Wales and the world.
The National Library has received financial assistance from the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver a project that will focus on the Cardiganshire Great War Tribunals Records. These were the tribunals that dealt with appeals against conscription to the armed forces on personal, economic, moral or religious grounds.
In 1921, the Government ordered that all tribunal records should be destroyed; nevertheless the Cardiganshire minutes survived. Now the archive is completely unique in Wales, and one of the few of its kind that exists in the United Kingdom.
Our project enables volunteers to use an online resource, recently developed by NLW, to transcribe and index the records so that they can be searched by name, address, date etc.
Staff and NLW volunteers will visit you to share the history of the records and to provide training on how to use the online resource. There will also be an opportunity during the information sessions to share and record local oral histories of the First World War.
The final resource will be available on the NLW website to researchers, family historians and anyone interested in the heritage of the Great War.
