I'm looking for anyone who could lookup and provide me copies on
"Bibliography" sources found below on my ancestor Rhys, Ifan Thomas (Rees, Evan
Thomas). This is taken from The National Library of Wales, Dictionary of Welsh Biography.
It is greatly hoped that it will shed more light on his family, specifically identifying
his family members. ANY and ALL information will be helpful here.
I highly appreciate your time and efforts - mahalo (thanks).
