It's not so helpful if you search on Neath!! It brings up all those
that are abbreviations of beneath:-(. Much better for Skewen though.
Just an example of what hidden gems might be out there.
Rina searched on Brynamman and came up with someone's obscure
that happened to have a 20 page description of his experiences as
of the local Brynamman elementary school in 1873/5.
Nothing earth shattering - but well worth knowing about.
