Discussion in 'History' started by katix88, Mar 6, 2011.

  1. Hiya I am a PGCE student in Cardiff and I'm currently working on an assignment about how local history can be used to enthuse pupils to learn history! At the moment however, I'm a bit stuck for reading for my Lit review. Any suggestions would be much appreciated :)
  2. Katix,
    More info for you. The website of the Glamorgan Family History Society is http://www.glamfhs.org with the Secetary at secretary@glamfhs.org.
    Both might be of use to you for research - my own family started in Somerset then went to South Wales where my GreatGrandFather was a miner in Aberdare and where my GrandFather and his siblings were born. If you are interested have a look on the web at the International Geneological Index - for free access to the entire 1881 census for England and Wales. Your pupils might find things about their ancestors on this.
    Hope all goes well with your course.
