Ohio man grateful for history help

Letter #390, July 9, 2012

The following letter from a man from Cleveland has been forwarded by Janet Toth, vice president of the Nant-Y-Glo Tri-Area Museum and Historical Society, as an example of the help members of the public are receiving because the Liberty Cafe is in operation in downtown Nanty Glo. Mr. Sinclair just came across the cafe (and the historical society offices there) while driving through town. —Webmaster

Janet I wanted to take a moment to thank you and James for your help and hospitality Thursday last on my visit to your store and historical society. To the point when I entered the store, my search to find my Great-grandfather had all but hit a brick wall. Through your knowledge and appreciation of history you were able to successfully provide what I was looking for. Through my Great-Grandfather's union activism with the UMW, I am hoping to find that he, George William Sinclair, may have been a prominent force in the labor movement in District 2 and a member of the Nanty Glo community. I am going to continue to research this area. It would be greatly appreciated if you can provide any connections to the UMW locally.

I am very intrigued by the progress that you have made with the Liberty Theatre. As a theater consultant and lighting designer I have renovated many period spaces. If I can be of assistance please do not hesitate to call.

Thanks Again!
Dennis Sinclair
