Welsh genealogy is usually included with its English cousin, but there are significant differences between the two, and anyone wishing to trace their Welsh ancestry will encounter peculiarities that are not covered by books on English family history. There is a separate system of archives and repositories for Wales, there are differences in civil registration and censuses, Nonconformist registers are dissimilar to those of other Churches and Welsh surnames and place names are very different to English ones.

Welsh Genealogy covers all of this as well as the basic Welsh needed by family historians; estate, maritime, inheritance, education and parish records; peculiarities of law; the Courts of Great Sessions and particular patterns of migration.

Written by Dr Bruce Durie, the highly respected genealogist. lecturer and author of the acclaimed 'Scottish Genealogy', this is the ideal book for local and family historians setting out on a journey to discover their Welsh ancestry.

    I purchased this book as a gift for a cousin so I cannot personally review it. Can let you know in a while if it does help with Welsh Family History. I'm sure she will get some good reading from this book.
