Montgomeryshire Genealogical Society organises a number of well attended talks, events and outings each year. In 2017 our Summer Outing was to Dolanog and Pontrobert and featured sites associated with famous Welsh hymnwriter Ann Griffiths. We visited the Ann Griffiths Memorial Chapel, Dolanog and then the John Hughes Chapel, Pontrobert and were entertained and informed in equal measure by our hosts at both venues. This was preceded by a buffet at the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel. In 2018 we held a joint event with the Llanfyllin Dolydd Workhouse, with talks on local families given by both organisations. A delicious meal was provided by the Dolydd, followed by a guided tour and a viewing of the community-made film about the workhouse and its history.
