Anybody researching ancestors who lived on Bardsey Island / Ynys Enlli, the tiny island 1.5 miles by 0.5 miles off the most western tip of North Wales? It is still populated by about a dozen people and little has changed over the last hundred years - the telephone only arrived three years ago, there is still no electricity and running water only arrived at the last house a couple of years ago!

I have been researching the folk who lived there and have details of some 250 plus people that lived there in the late 1700's up to early 1900's.

I have a note that a David Richard was going to America early in 1831 - anyone trying to trace him?

Interested to hear from anyone else researching same.

Ian Jolly
