Gathering the Jewels

What better way to celebrate St. David's Day than to visit Gathering the Jewels—a digital exhibit with "20,000 images of objects, books, letters, aerial photographs and other items from museums, libraries and record offices in Wales"? You'll gain insight into the customs, language, landscape, and history of this exotic but not-all-that-remote corner of Great Britain. There's a section on family history that explains how the website might be useful to genealogists with Welsh roots. If you feel truly inspired, try browsing the website in Welsh.
