If you have an interest in areas of the

Historic Tree in Wales

then this is your project. Initially the purpose of the project will be to clear up tangles that have evolved from mass merging but hopefully as we travel we hope to ensure the sources are reliable and the overviews informative and well researched and increasingly this will become the focus of this project.

Anyone not familiar with Welsh Ancestry but should soon become apparant and a fact which is useful to know is that ap means son of and verch means daughter of so if you are faced with a merge of two profiles and one is ap Llewellyn and the other is ap Rhodri then they are obviously most probably not the same person. (or they have been mis-named - check the other relationships)

Resources

When constructing early Welsh profiles, please check Peter C. Bartrum, A Welsh Classical Dictionary: People in History and Legend up to about A.D. 1000 for spelling and biographical details.
