AAS and Eisteddfod

This is just a reminder that the Society has a small presence in the Lle Hanes tent (alongside Cadw, RCAHMW and the National Museum).
Our books are for sale there and our leaflets are available. It might be a good idea if members could take a handful and press them in them into the hands of friends and acquaintances you may meet elsewhere on the Maes.
There will be a sessions each afternoon in Lle Hanes with Cefyn Burgess a Community Wall Hanging for the ‘replica’ Llys Rhosyr being built at St Fagans.
And there will be historical lectures Monday – Wednesday at 1.00-2.00pm in the Societies Tent 1; on Thursday and Friday these lectures will be from 3.00 - 4.00pm
On Tuesday Aug. 8th at 10.30-11.00 and again at 2.30 -3.00 there will be a 20 minute ‘taster’ for the Community Opera on the Court of Llywelyn Fawr in Lle Hanes. Some may remember we were consulted on this last autumn.
On Wednesday Aug. 9th at 3.00pm Glenda Carr will be giving the Cambrian Archaeological Association lecture in The Societies Tent 1. She will be speaking about Anglesey Place Names. The lecture will be chaired by Prof Prys Morgan and will be in Welsh.
On Thursday Aug 10th at 12.30-1.00pm the Llanfechell Historical Society will be putting on a short show in Lle Hanes. Robin would be very pleased if you would support them!
On Friday at 12.15 in the Bangor University Tent, Peter Lord will be giving an illustrated lecture on “Portraying the People of Anglesey” (see below)

Gybodaeth pellech /Further information


Welcome to the Society's New Website which was developed as part of a wider programme of activities to commemorate and celebrate the Society's Centenary Anniversary in 2011/2012. This programme has received funding through the Rural Development Plan for Wales 2007-2013 which is funded by the Welsh Assembly Government and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. (Cyllidwyd y prosiect hwn yn rhannol drwy Gynllun Datblygu Gweldig I Gymru 2007-2013 a ariennir gan Lywodraeth Cynulliad Cymru a’r Gronfa Amaethyddol Ewrop ar gyfer Datblygu Gwledig.) (See European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD))


The new web site provides on line search facilities to the Society's Index to the Transactions 1913-1985 and to the Bibliography of Anglesey, both compiled by Dewi O. Jones. Both are essential starting points in hunting down information about the history of the Island and as part of the Centenary Celebration we are working to bring them up to date.

On some pages icons are shown at the head of the page:
  • Clicking on the printer friendly icon will generate a 'printer friendly' page without the side bar and top banner.
    Any links on the page will still be live if you want to follow them.

  • Clicking on the pdf icon will create a PDF of the page without the side bar and top banner. You can either open the file immediately and then save it if you want to, or you can save it without viewing it. (You will need an Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer to open it).
    Any links on the page will be preserved within the PDF file.

NB These options will not work on pages generated from a search term that you have entered on one of the searchable index pages but they will work with the A-Z lists on the Transactions - Subject Index page. To print the results of search generated from your chosen search term use one of these options:
  • If you wish to print part of an index you can highlight the section you want to print and then click 'Selection' in the Print Range option on your Print dialogue box. This will limit what is printed to the area you highlighted.

  • You could cut and paste highlighted sections into a word processor file and then use that facility to control what is printed and how. This option allows you to save the information you want to use.

  • You could install a 'print to PDF' printer driver on your computer. With one of these installed you can choose to create a PDF file of a section you have highlighted. (A PDF printer driver will make it possible for you to create a PDF of anything you would normally printout from any program you wish to print from). A suitable PDF printer driver, free for personal use, is available from bullzip.com.
