Tramorwyr yng Nghymru yn Oes Victoria - Dr Gerald Morgan
Wed, 05 Oct 11 13:15:00

Gwyddom am y Cymry a deithiodd i'r Amerig, ond beth am y rheiny a ddychwelodd adref? Wrth olrhain eu hanes, daeth i'r amlwg faint o dramorwyr oedd yn byw yng Nghymru Oes Fictoria ym 1881. We know about the Welsh who went to America, but what about the ones who returned home? Searching for them led to the discovery of how many foreigners were living in Victorian Wales in 1881. Event held in Welsh with simultaneous translation.
