Mae fy mamgu, Harriet Ross, a'r teulu, wedi dod o'r Merthyr Tudful i Seland Newydd.

Having returned to live here myself for 10 years and now going back, I know what a radical step they took.

My 9th Great Grandfather, James Leonard came from Pontypool and set up the first Iron Works in Taunton, Massachusetts Bay Colony ca. 1650.
I hope to visit Pontypool when travel is allowed!
