Product Description

Review

REVIEWS OF THE FIRST EDITION 'Although this is a book primarily for genealogists ... it is likely to be a boon to many kinds of historian.' Professor Prys Morgan in Welsh History Review 'Rowlands and Rowlands have compiled a book which is not only scholarly but also readable... the small size of this book belies its importance... May there be many more such!' Dr Patrick Hanks in Family History News & Digest 'The Rowlands have filled their book with facts and figures in a manner which is never dull. If you are planning to write about surnames, this is the way to do it.' --Local History Magazine

Worth more than five stars. Fills in many gaps in researching family history,
Would recommend it to every genealogist looking into their Welsh past.

first class service providing a fascinating read, a very comprehensive coverage of the subject far beyond the usual "Jones/Williams" names.

Yes, a seminal work by a pair of authorities and vital to anyone tracing their roots in Cymru. Read it from the library years ago.
