Letter #390, July 9, 2012
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
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.
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
