FULL TITLE: History of the Welsh in Minnesota, Foreston and Lime Springs, Iowa, gathered by the Old Settlers
Edited by the Reverends Thomas E. Hughes and David Edwards, and Messrs. Hugh G. Roberts and Thomas Hughes.
1895


The Cymru-Catalonia Website hopes to reproduce in its entirety this interesting account of the inhabitants of the Welsh settlements in southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. Most of the text (about 97%) has now been included; at some future date we shall complete them, and add the photos and illustrations


NOTE: For ourline edition we have slightly modifed some aspects of the book.


(1) The original order of the text sections is retained. We have added some section headings in the body of the text (a small number are of our own devising; and do not appear in the original book; others appear in the list of the books contents but do not appear in the text). We have numbered each section for clarity. The text itself is unaltered.


(2) Comments have been inserted into the text between braces {....} to correct errors in the text, to clarify and explain, and to add a translation of Welsh words and expressions.


(3) A few obvious printing errors have been corrected (Giffiths has been amended to Griffiths, for example). Others are retained and a correction follows between braces.
