Welsh Interest Group


Flag Of Wales

This group is for QFHS members addressing the particular challenges of researching families in Wales. You will find us friendly, enthusiastic, and welcoming.

Our meetings usually feature a short talk or presentation, and there is always opportunity for discussion of a brick wall or a tricky research problem.

If you're unravelling your Davies, Evans, Jones, Williams or other Welsh families, then this is the group for you.

If your family hails from one of the historic counties of Anglesey, Brecknock, Caernarfon, Ceredigion, Carmarthen, Denbigh, Flint, Glamorgan, Merioneth, Monmouth, Montgomery, Pembroke or Radnor, then this is also the group for you.



The group meets on the third Sunday in January, March, May, July, September, and November between 10.00 am and 12.00 noon. Presently we are meeting online using Zoom - email the convenor for details.
