I know one of my Howells went to New South Wales, Australia. As for the others, I don't know what happens on the descendency end. The name Isaac stands out to me. If one of yours is an Isaac, please let me know.
A lot of my time has been spent trying to get documentation for what has been passed down in the family. I am intrigued by the Monmouthshire info as one of the lines I haven't had time to work with is located there. Would you mind sharing the web address?
Like you, I am mostly interested in a personal goal and sense of accomplishment.
Unfortunately my work schedule got a little crazy after I signed up and I became concerned that I would be able to attend regularly and do the necessary follow-up timely. I opted out of the Mentoring class, but plan to checkout the Group on GenealogyWise as some day I hope to work toward accreditation or certification. Right now I am a little confused on which direction to pursue as my research experience has not really been focused in a predominant geographic region, more US at large.
