The goal of the Wales-Ohio Project is to digitize a selection of Welsh Americana relating to the state
held at The National Library of Wales and to make it available to audiences world-wide via this website.
This site displays:
• more than 10,000 images of archive, manuscript and printed material, photographs and maps
• the contents of The Cambrian magazine (1880-1919)
• sections which chronicle the history and experiences of the Welsh settlers in Ohio in the nineteenth century.
This website is a valuable resource for anyone interested in Welsh-American history and culture including
genealogists, researchers, local historians, students and life long learners. It also celebrates and strengthens
the bonds that exist between Wales, Ohio and the United States of America.
Evan E. and Elizabeth F. Davis, Oak Hill, Ohio have generously funded the Wales-Ohio Project.
They kindly provided The National Library of Wales with further financial assistance to enhance
