    This is incredible! My hubby is Welsh, his grandfather, coming to Ellis Island and eventually to Oklahoma to work in the coal mines. When we were dating they always talked in Welch and very fast and I could never understand them! lol

    We have long wanted to visit Wales.

    Thanks, wfgodot for all the UK/Welch threads!

    Lots of Welsh blood on both sides of my family (my mother was a Jones). At least in recent history I know of no mining, but my own build - long back, short legs, perfect for digging coal out of the face of a pit thousands of feet below ground - probably means I was long ago bred for it.

    His name was Davies but he changed it to Davis so he would "fit in" in America

    He was trapped in a coal mine explosion sometime in the 30's and later died of black lung disease.
