Croeso To The Iowa Welsh Society's Website The purpose of the Society is to foster interest in the culture, history and language of Wales. We seek to encourage fellowship between people of Welsh descent and those interested in Wales and Welsh life, to preserve the history of the American-Welsh in Iowa and to establish connections with other Welsh-American organizations. In 1993 members of the Iowa Welsh Society realized that the current generations of Welsh in Iowa were the last to remember the immigrant Welsh families who were their parents and grandparents. With the purpose of preserving these remembrances, a committee was formed. It proposed collecting oral histories and was awarded some financial support from the Iowa Humanities Board and the Iowa Welsh Society. Members of the project committee worked on a volunteer basis from the summer of 1994 to conduct the interviews and bring the interview material together for the book titled THE WELSH WAY-ORAL HISTORY OF THE LONG CREEK WELSH COMMUNITY IN IOWA
