    I have ancestors in my family from Anglesey. My sister is married to a bloke from North Wales and they live in North Wales.

    I had many a good holiday and days out as a kid in Wales.

    My dad was evacuated to Llandudno during WW2

    I like the way the streets in Liverpool start with letters that spell out Welsh names, good idea by the builders that.

    funny thing is i have OWENS in my family and they come from Galway

    I can speak some Welsh but don't tempt me - my spelling is very bad.

    The Welsh weren't happy about the flooding for lake Vrynwy though to supply our watter (as Seth would say)

    Rydw I yn Cymraeg. Gefais I Fyng eni yn Bangor in 1979 ac on I'n byw yn Bethel cyn mynd I prifysgol in Lerpwl.

    A bit rusty with my Welsh too, but that basically says I'm Welsh and I was born in Bangor in 1979. I lived in a village called Bethel before moving to Liverpool to go to university.

    I've lived here ever since. I love the fact that almost every bloody cabbie I use used to holiday in Wales and had relatives evacuated to villages around mine during the war. My dad was born in Bethesda, where loads of scousers were evacuated to.

    That is still a sore point for many actually and the single reason why the Eisteddfod in Liverpool idea never went anywhere.

    Wasn't Liverpool the Capital of North Wales at 1 time?

    My father was born in North Wales and so was my grandfather. The latter used to preach in Wales all over Liverpool, Manchester and North Wales every Sunday. Of course, many of the welsh speaking churches have gone now. Like the Irish, the Welsh played a major part in C19 and early C20 Liverpool but sadly, there's no Welsh heritage trail yet, just the Irish one. I'm currently reading a lot about the Welsh in Liverpool as I'm going to do a guided walk on the Scouse Welsh (the Squelch?) on St David's Day.

    There was a large Welsh contingent in Anfield - my family were from there and they had Welsh roots. I believe a lot of the houses were built by Welsh workers.

    I believe several Welsh Eisteddfods have already been held in Liverpool.

    Julie have you read the books by Prof D Ben Rees on the Welsh of Merseyside. Worth a read if you haven't
