Researching Your Welsh Roots

Unrelated to my genealogy researches, I also enjoy writing stories. My husband shares my interests in these subjects and we sometimes collaborate on stories. (One of our collaborations has been published in the anthology Space Pirates, edited by David Lee Summers.) In association with a story we're working on, my husband was researching Welsh immigration to Ireland and came across the website Data Wales. Although the site's apparent focus is Wales, itself, it also provides a number of articles on emigration from Wales and, in particular, on American immigrants of Welsh ancestry. If your tree includes ancestors from Wales, you are almost certain to find the site of interest.
