Searching for the Welsh

During my posts, I’ve listed sites which I’ve found helpful and I hope some of you have found them helpful too. I am sorry if they haven’t been so far, I’ve been listing sites which I have used to trace my own ancestors who have so far all been from England, Cornwall, Scotland and Ireland. I will do what I can to list sites that should help people from all over the world so that if your ancestors aren’t from England, Ireland, Scotland or Cornwall they’ll come in handy for you.
