The title translated means "Memories of New Quay" and is still available in bookshops as I saw it in Siop Y Pethe in Aberystwyth not long ago. An interesting book for anyone, like me, who had ancestors living in New Quay in the 19th century and who can read Welsh. Myra Evans, nee Rees, was born in 1883 and most of the book, written inthe 1950s relates events, and customs and describes people and places of not just her own childhood in the busy port and shipbuilding centre of New Quay, but also of her parents and grandparents time thus taken us back to the beginning of the 19th and late 18th century. When I first read this book about fifteen years ago I did not realise that Myra was, in fact, a distant relative and it was only a couple of years ago while doing family history research, did I discover the relationship and the grandparents she referred too were actually my own 3xgreat grandparents! Myra left New Quay in 1903 to train as a teacher at Swansea and after her teaching career, marriage and children she returned to live at Gilfachreda where she wrote this, and other books in Welsh and English.
