  • Rowlands, J & S. The Surnames of Wales, for family historians and others. FFHS, 1996.
    • "The dominance of a small number of common surnames in Wales can be a major stumbling block for those researching their Welsh ancestry or those wishing to distinguish between individuals within a given community as part of a local history study. This book attempts to dispel the myths that surround the subject of surnames in Wales - such as the widely-held belief (outside Wales) that nearly everyone is called Jones - by describing the development of surnames within Wales down to modern times. Equal emphasis has been given within the text to common names found throughout Wales and to rarer ones found only in specific localities. [The survey given] of surnames in Wales in the period 1813-1837 can be used to suggest a place of origin within Wales for groups of people (a minimum of two) about whom all that is known is that 'they came from Wales'. For many people whose ancestors left Wales for other parts of Britain or the New World this predictive method could offer the first real opportunity for making oups of people (a minimum of two) about whom all that is known is that 'they came from Wales'. For many people whose ancestors left Wales for other parts of Britain or the New World this predictive method could offer the first real opportunity for making progress in tracing those elusive (and often seemingly anonymous) Welsh ancestors by narrowing down the potential search area."

    • From the dust jacket;- "Welsh Surnames is the first full-scale study of Welsh surnames and is both a classification and a dictionary. Based on Welsh, Latin and English texts, on parish registers and local histories, it traces the growth of a Welsh surnaming pattern in Wales and the Border at the end of the Middle Ages. This historical picture is completed by evidence taken from modern sources such as electoral registers from Wales and western England, surnames from Welsh and London newspapers, and telephone directories.The book opens with a classification of the various kinds of Welsh surnames besides the innumerable examples of the well-known Welsh patronymic surname; surnames from hypocoristic forms, from anglicisations and approximations of Welsh names, from the forenames of women, from place-names, and many others. This is followed by a dictionary of Welsh surnames which also gives attention to variations and corruptions of the original names.Welsh Surnames is aimed both at the specialist and the general reader, and will be an invaluable tool not only for the historian or the genealogist but also the geographer and sociologist."

    • From the dust jacket;-
      "This volume is a calendar of the returns made in south Wales to the Religious Census of 1851 - the only occasion in modern times when there was an official and comprehensive count of the accommodation available for, and the actual attendance at, religious worship. The returns themselves, which are preserved in the Public Record Office, have been transcribed and the information in them presented in a standardized form. All idiosyncracies of spelling and presentation in the original returns have been preserved. Additional information from other contemporary sources - including population figures for all parishes and other divisions - has been added so as to make the calendar as comprehensive as possible. A long, introductory essay places the Census in its historical background, explains why and how it came to be made and the method used in its compilation, and suggests ways in which it can be reliably used by the researcher. The volume thus makes available to students of the history of religion and of society, and particularly to local historians, a source of primary importance."

    • Gomer site intro; "The last forty years or so have seen an unprecedented number of newcomers to Wales, both as tourists and as settlers. Most of them come with little or no knowledge of the Welsh language or of its writers along the ages. Some are not bothered, some find it a 'private language' and give up. Others, who would like to know more, look in vain for an easily - read outline for busy people who may be intimidated by academic volumes, excellent though they may be. That there is a demand for a more popular read became apparent when the author of this book was persuaded to take on an Adult Education class, in English, on Welsh Literature. The success of this over two years was undoubtedly due to the author herself being able to approach her task as a non-academic journalist who wanted to find out more for herself."

Naturally, their story is placed in the wider political and social context, so that changes spanning a thousand years of Welsh history are comprehensively documented. Essays by an impressive group of historians were commissioned by the BBC to complement their Millennium radio series.
