See one of our recent Ireland101 Tribe Gatherings

Pembrokeshire in West Wales is best known for its outstanding beaches and coastal wildlife. In fact, the county’s entire coastline comprises Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, and the first section of the Wales Coast Path – the Pembrokeshire Coast Path – officially launched here in 1970. Inland, the undulating countryside is peppered with ancient castles and prehistoric ruins.

Kick off a trip to Pembrokeshire with a day or two in Tenby, the region’s chocolate-box seaside town. The pretty harbour is lined with pastel-coloured houses backing onto a maze of narrow lanes where you’ll find plenty of pubs, boutiques and restaurants. Don’t miss Castle Beach, which overlooks a tidal island topped with the ruins of St Catherine’s Fort – you can walk across to explore the island at low tide. Carew Castle – home to the only restored tidal mill in Wales – is just a 15-minute drive away.

Other highlights on the Castlemartin Peninsula (the most southerly of Pembrokeshire’s three peninsulas) include the legend-shrouded St Govan’s Chapel, a tiny building squeezed between two rock faces near St Govan’s Head; Green Bridge, a natural rock arch rivalling the likes of England’s Durdle Door when it comes to rugged beauty; and Freshwater West, the vast beach featured in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I as house elf Dobby’s final resting place.

Wildlife lovers will want to save time for a trip to Skomer Island, which lies less than a mile off the coast of Marloes Peninsula. The island’s famous puffin colony is best spotted between June and July, though sightings are possible between April and August. There’s also a healthy population of Manx shearwaters, as well as grey and common seals – come in September for the best chance of seeing fluffy seal pups.\

St Davids is the most westerly point on mainland Wales and is the UK’s smallest city – with a population of just 1,600. It’s a popular destination with visitors due to its incredible coastal location and medieval cathedral, which has been a place of pilgrimage since the 12th century. The city is also the ideal jumping off point for a day trip to Ramsey Island RSPB reserve; the isle’s 120-metre-high cliffs are the perfect spot to catch a glimpse of the region’s birds, including guillemots, razorbills, choughs, peregrines and buzzards.

In Pembrokeshire, even Wales’ historic slate industry has been given a makeover by mother nature. The Blue Lagoon in Abereiddy is an old slate quarry that’s been flooded by the sea, creating a fabulous spot to kayak, swim or stand up paddleboard. The old slate beneath the water is what gives the lagoon its pale blue colour.

If you can tear yourself away from Pembrokeshire’s divine beaches and coastal walking trails, head to the Preseli Hills for a lesson in local ancient history. The gentle green hills here are scattered with prehistoric relics, from the three Bronze Age burial cairns of Foel Drygarn to the supposed remains of a Neolithic stone circle known as Waun Marn. Don’t miss Pentre Ifan, a Neolithic dolmen that’s Wales’ answer to Stonehenge – indeed, Stonehenge’s bluestone is thought to have been sourced in these very hills.

If you like your history a little more interactive, make your way to Castell Henllys Iron Age Village. Set within 30 acres of woodland and meadows, the roundhouses and granary that were here over 2,000 years ago have been reconstructed on the same foundations using authentic materials, and a gaggle of actors represent the tribe who lived here. Indoors, the visitor centre features videos and vibrant exhibits to help you learn more about what life was like in the Iron Age.

101 Must-Do’ ways to live your regional connection.

Our 101 team have been working with local tourism, business, community and Council initiatives to bring you some of the best ways for you to live your connection to Pembrokeshire.

According to the Book "History of Alabama and Her People" by Albert Burton Moore, my 4th Great Grandfather, James M. Smith had origins in Ireland. Unfortunately, the book never clearly states where from. He was born c. 1778, but isn't clear on the place. His first born, Daniel Ulysses Smith was born in Georgia,USA while all other children were born in Alabama, USA. Is anyone familiar with this family?

(Part 1 of 3) The Smith name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says one of its origins is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. The Smith’s of Cavan story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup D2] can trace their beginnings to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. This Smith surname origin is from the Cenél Conaill [R1b-L513, Subgroup D] who found the Dál Fiatach.

My 2nd great grandparents came from Ireland to the USA. do not know when/what port they immigrated to or when/where they were married, but the first census I find them in is as Thomas Williams and Mrs. 1860 Leavenworth Kansas. The Mrs. is Mary Fling b. 1825, 1830 or 1835 varies on census' and Thomas Williams either 1830 or 1834. First son was James born in 1855 Bloomington, Ill, Daughter Winifred b. 1857 and Charles Arthur my great grandfather 1858. The census' list them both as from Ireland, until 1930 my great grandfather lists his parents as from Northern Ireland. The only thing I know about Thomas Williams comes from the 1860 Federal Census taken in Leavenworth Kansas and the 1865 State Census taken in Leavenworth Kansas, I never find him again after that date. I have not located his immigration information or marrige information. Coincidentally there is a Thomas Williams and Anne Eliza Fling Williams in 1860 Bloomington, Illnois Census, they have a son Charles Edward, but dates and ages Do Not match and can't be in two places at one time. would love to learn where they were both from in Ireland.

Mike Adams

We are from ADAMS of Aghacarnan, Magheragall and neighbouring Ballynacoy, Glenavy, County Antrim, Ireland... Methodists, buried in the Tullyrusk Graveyard at Dundrod, Crumlin. We have always presumed our Adams were of Scottish Plantation origin. However, after many decades research, we are surprised to find a large number of our Adams share DNA with the US Presidential Adams family. This family originates from Henry Adams 1583-1646 of Barton St David, Somerset, England and neighbouring Gloucestershire, who we believe fled religious persecution in 1638 for Massachusetts USA. If this DNA connection is correct and given migration was one direction towards America, this would suggest other close members of Henry Adams’ family must have left Somerset for Northern Ireland, perhaps via Scotland. Surprisingly, with everyone focusing in the great Irish diaspora, there appears little on the web regarding intra-UK family migration that brought many English and Scots to Northern Ireland’s shores in the first place. Consequently, we are interested in making contact with other genealogy enthusiasts, who might have evidence of Somerset Adams ending up in County Antrim, Ireland?

Roberts (Roberson)

Being born Welsh and having Welsh blood on my maternal side, this is not correct for all Roberts families. Fixed surnames in Wales is a late development for the majority. The patronymic system meant that the son often took the first name of the father as last name of the son. So it was only from when Henry VIII decreed that fixed names should be used in Wales did fixed names started to became the norm. This took quite some time. Thus not all Roberts's even in Wales are related. Roberts is not only a Welsh name, but English Sottish and Irish. In England it's first recorded in the Doomsday book recorded in Latin as Filius Roberti (son of Robert) Of Oxford. Roberts's in Ireland were descended from Clan Colla. (O'Heart). In Sc

(Part 1 of 3) The Evans name has a long history in British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says their origin is from the Emerald Island. The Evans story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B2] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Evans surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly, McDonald and Donohue in Ireland.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Evans story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. An ancestor and many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

Dennis Morris was born around 1710 in or about Galway. He departed Galway in 1732 (supposedly shortly after the English banned Catholic land ownership) and came to Baltimore, Maryland in North America, an open port for arriving Catholics. He proceeded north to New Jersey, married and started him family. He died in 1800 in New Jersey.

Hello out there! Trying to find info on John Morris who arrived in Australia in 1840 (from County Tyrone Ireland.. Donegal I think). He took up a large piece of land in the Junee NSW area and farmed sheep. His property was called Geralgambeth. As far as I'm aware, he was a free settler. I have a fair bit of info on his life after he arrived but none prior. Any snippets would be greatly appreciated. Regards

I have done my DNA with Ancestry. My great grandmother arrived NewZealand in around 1866 she married in Christchurch, new zealand 1773 all we know about her is her father was John Rodger's . They were both from Feckle Couty Clare, Irealand.I have managed to find a few Dna matches for County Clare ,(Hayes ) and some more but irish records are slim. So I Decided to write all the Roger's and Rodger down in the trees that I have DNA matches with. A huge task I have around 500 maybe due to the fact that I asked to keep the 6 and 7cm that were taken out Aug last year. I have found I have 36 DNA matches to the Thomas Roger's trees of the Mayflower I assume that my connection was in the late 1500s, I also have DNa matches to the Giles Fitz Roger's, Scotland. The Donegel , ireland, Rodgers and Pattons, Then some from Somerset,Eng. The Oklahoma Roger's, Virginia Roger's, Massachusetts Roger's, Maryland Rogers. BUT I have know idea were I fit.

My Morgan Ancestry points me towards the Counties Cork and Kerry, and I do believe that the surname Sullivan may be prominent as well, in my family tree, but I haven't found any concrete proof, of this. However my knowledge of the Morgan surname has only taken me as far as London, England, in a time about 1892, as then is when my grand father Frank (Francis) Morgan was born. I lose the trail there though, because I am not sure of his birth records, or the names of his parents. He was found on the streets of London, practically a street urchin or orphan, and shipped to Canada about age 10 (in 1903) to be adopted or indentured with a Canadian family. This was done through the Catholic church based in Ottawa, Canada. He later married and raise

The Jenkins name has a long history in Wales, but now DNA and some recorded history says their origin is from the Emerald Island. The Jenkins story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B2] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Jenkins surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly, McDonald and Donohue in Ireland. The Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France according to research from the Centre de Recherche Bretonne et Celtique. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscr

My grandmother was Geneva Owens, daughter of Sheriff of Glynn County in Georgia U.S.A.. There is a large extended Owens family there that reunites every year in Brunswick GA.. Interesting, the Owens family tree is on my mother's side. On my fathers side is the Lloyd clan, descended from my father's side from Elystan ap Gllodrydd of the fifth tribe of royal wales.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Stephens story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. An ancestor and many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

Walters

I'm having trouble tracing the origins of my father's family. The earliest ancestor I'm sure of is James Walters, who married Polly Roberts around 1850 in Eastern KY. I've been told 7 Walters brothers came to Kentucky from Pennsylvania through the Cumberland Gap, but that's family lore. I have a hunch they came to America from Wales, but I can't substantiate that. I'd appreciate any information anyone can give me.

I want to know my origins. I’m a tribalist, I wish that one day in the future, there is a place where those who do not forget the ways of the past can mix it with technology, like in the game Horizon Zero Dawn. Imagine a place where we live simple lives, no nations that run by corrupt people. I’m not an extremist, I only want to be who I am and I feel that the first step is to know where I came from.

Hello fellow Griffiths, I am Ronelle from Cape Town South Africa, I am trying to find out more about my father's side of the family. I never really knew my father, he left when I was 2 years old after being married to my mother for 21 years. He in turn did not really know his father either, I don't even have a name of my grandfather. Is there someone willing to help me find out more about him. My father was Walter George (Wally) Griffiths, bright red hair, sky blue eyes, I would really love to know more about the Griffiths family name, any information is much appreciated and welcomed.
