    Wonderful Webinar. I will want to see this again. Loved how it went down to Patagonia and then up to Saskatchewan, Canada, and spoke about the children having teachers to keep their Welch language intact.

    There is so much in the syllabus that it’s like having an extra webinar off of the main webinar! Thanks Paul!

    I would give this webinar a 10 if I could! So much information, I couldn’t write fast enough! It’s wonderful there is such a great syllabus included. Paul Milner is a fantastic presenter. I had the honor of seeing him in person once at an NGS conference. I get SO MUCH out of his talks. Such a wealth of knowledge! I have JONES in my tree–out of North Carolina—but had no clue where in Wales they were from. This webinar has given me a LOT to go on in my research, Can’t wait to get going!
