Reflections on Studying the Past – Meddyliau ar Astudio’r Gorffennol

Professor Martin Johnes recently gave an online talk for the genealogy website FindmyPast about using the census to understand the history of the Welsh language.

Drawing upon his research into the role of education in the decline of Welsh in the late 19th century, Martin explored how the census collected language data, questions around its reliability and how it illustrates the dynamics of linguistic change within families and communities.
