AmeriCymru Dating Service

OK so that was just a cheap trick to get your attention. We aren't really setting up a Welsh dating site. What we are doing, however, is appealing for dates to complete a long standing project - the Welsh Calendar site. We have reproduced the current month's calendar page below so you can get an idea of how it works . It doesn't quite fit on this page but you can view the original here . So if you can think of any dates we've missed that are worthy of inclusion please feel free to comment below.

Either Facebook or Blogger comments will do just fine or email americymru at with your suggestion.  We are particularly looking for birth dates of historic persons and famous entertainers but battles, publication dates etc etc will all be considered for inclusion. For now most of the links on the calendar go to Wikipedia pages but this is a work in progress and we will be adding more content as we go along.

If you are a member of the AmeriCymru social site  ( and if not please consider joining )we will be awarding a 'Gold Sheep of Excellence for Historical Research' to anyone who helps out:)

Individual calendar monthly pages are linked from the dropdown menu at the top of this page. Here's the blurb from the site home page:-

"If you were born Welsh or are of Welsh descent then there is something to celebrate (or comemmorate) on every day of the year. If you are looking to learn Welsh history one day at a time or just looking for an excuse to raise a glass and celebrate on any particular day this blog is for you. You will also find the birthdates of many famous Americans of Welsh descent on these pages. Though these pages are intended as a serious resource some of my co-contributors have a sense of humor. Consequently there are a few 'joke' items spread amongst the vast bulk of factual daily entries. We dont think you'll have too much trouble spotting them. To navigate to any date in the calendar please use the rollover menu or the search box above. This will take you to the monthly calendar pages or to individual entries. You might also wish to check out our list of some of the most important dates in the Welsh Calendar which can be found here."
