The Welsh migrated to escape religious and political persecution and in search of work.
America presented a dilemma common to migrants, how to retain language, culture 
and belonging to “home” while adjusting to the demands and pressures of a new situation.
The talk will include extracts from an enhanced ebook to appear this summer.
