It was most pleasant to make your acquaintance, and I will support your excellent work with genealogy. It is all on www.aias.us . Carole Hopkin is my cousin in two ways, on the Morgan side and Hopkin side, and Mary Hopkin and I were in Pontardawe Grammar School for six years (1961 – 1967). Mary is a few days older than me, which means that she is over eighteen. I will read your books with great interest. I think that a yew tree dating at Cor Eurgain might determine its year of planting as mid first century, and I will certainly try to have an excavation started of the mound called Cor Eurgain.”
With all of this talk of trees, DNA and genealogy, can it be long before Ron declares that he is related to Yggdrasil. Or perhaps, sticking to the equally manufactured christian myth and remembering that we are dealing with dead wood, Ron will announce that he is a distant cousin to the One True Cross.
