This guide is the perfect introduction to Welsh genealogy research for the novice or someone seeking a quick refresher course. In four 8 ½” x 11” laminated pages the authors cover the historical background to Welsh genealogy, the crucial importance of Welsh names and naming practices, the country’s major religious denominations, emigration, and the key genealogical sources. The authors discuss parish registers, bishops’ transcripts, marriage bonds, census records, probate records, tithe maps (showing the payments charged to land users), and newspapers. A separate section covers the best books and online sources for Welsh genealogy, with special tips for getting the maximum benefit from each cited source.
