For more than 50 years genealogy has been part of my life. With a surname like JONES, it finally became clear that my ancestors began their history in the mountains of Wales. This ancestry has certainly presented its share of challenges. How, what, when , where, and why in the Welsh culture produced many brick walls before me. This blog is intended to help those with Welsh genealogy. I have not found a similar blog open to everyone, so here goes.
Welsh culture is founded upon genealogy. The family group is central to the social structure and its survival, having its roots in Celtic culture. Since JONES is Welsh, I have also started a blog entitled thejonessurname.blogspot.com which introduces much of the early history of the Welsh culture. This background is foundational to understanding Welsh genealogy. So let's begin. Anyone with Welsh genealogy, or an interest, is invited to join in the tree climbing.
