The goal of this project is to create profiles of the Welsh Club of Wichita members. If the woman was a member, it is more than likely that her, or her husband's family, were of Welsh descent.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Michelle Enke.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Locate members of the Welsh Club
  • Create profiles of the members and link to to/from page
  • Develop biographies of members profiles

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!
