    To Clarify.

    I can say that I am 1/8 Welsh, but it is Welsh in nationality, rather than ethnicity.  The family was named Brown, and they were of English descent.  Why they moved from England to Wales, I don't know.  But I do know (from genealogical research done by my great-aunt) that...

    I'm Proud to Be Welsh!

    I am Welsh from my father-Wortham.  My brother is the quintessential "hairy Welshman," which makes him fun to tease...and so easy to pull hair anywhere!  My father's great grandfather, Hugh, came over and the family settled in Texas, where I was born and...

    I love being Welsh, and I am

    so proud of my beautiful country. It drives me bonkers when Wales isn't recognised independently for the glorious nation it is. I don't mind being British, but I'm Welsh first. Cymru am Byth

    I'm Half Welsh

    It's probably alot more complicated than that, but I'm not really into genealogy. My mother was born in England, then she moved to Wales where she met my Welsh father, So I' half and half. :D I prefer being Welsh though, but maybe hypocritically I find the welsh-english...

    Welsh and Proud!

    I am Welsh, and am very happy at Wales beating the English in rugby!!!  Also the Welsh football side beating Norway 3-0 in a friendly, and Joe Calzaghe about to beat Hopkins all adds up to makes me a proud Welshman.

    Death Of A Clown.

    I had watched him act on television. He hadn,t starred in anything. Only adverts and a bit-part, a small role as an obedient servant in a twelve-part drama. He had a couple of lines, not many words - usually "yes" or "no", or "yes sir, that,s correct."But to the people of the...

    The majority of my family settled here in the
