Welsh GenealogyBook - 2012
"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 in Wales, there are difference in civil registration and censuses, Nonconformist registers are different 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, maritme, inheritance, education and parish records; peculiarities of law; the Courts of Great Sessions and particular patterns of migration"--Page 4 of cover.
