W is for Wales - Family History Through the Alphabet - Week 23

Image from Gould Genealogy & History News
This is my contribution to Week 23 of Gould Genealogy's Family History Through the Alphabet challenge. The letter this time is W.

W is for...Wales
Wales, or more specifically, Caernarvonshire, Wales, is where my Ellis and Jones ancestors originated (See also E is for Ellis and J is for Jones). 
Here is a map of the locations in Wales relevant to my family history.

  1. I admire anyone that takes on research in Wales, while I don't have any experiece, the placenames look hard enough to me.

  2. Do you have any luck with your Welsh research? I could use some tips.

    My Jones family also came from Wales. Elias and his father Daniel Jones are a brickwall.


Your comments are appreciated. Thanks.
