FelinFach is pleased to join the Americymru network (Click here to visit) which is a great website for the Welsh, ex pats and persons of Welsh descent in the 'America's' and elsewhere and gives a Croeso/Welcome to the Welsh 'daiaspora' :)
Americymru seeks to provide a social network for the Welsh, persons of Welsh descent and Cymruphiles all over the world .The network is a place where members can share their experiences of Wales and engage in friendly debate in our forums. The network has many features which allow people with a shared love of Wales to communicate and share photos, videos, links, blogposts etc and we will be adding new features from time to time. It also extend a warm welcome to our cousins from other Celtic nations.
Secondly Americymru seeks to promote Wales as well as the Welsh-American community and other communities of the Welsh 'diaspora' in Wales. It has no political agenda in so doing but merely a desire to help familiarise it's members and readers with the best of traditional and modern Welsh literature, music and culture. For this reason it encourages the use of the site as a 'shop-window' in most instances.
