I really don't know. It's on my mom's family, but they've lived in America for quite a bit, probably since around 1850. If I had to guess, I think they were part of the migration from Wales when people realized they could make four times as much in the plains of the Ohio and the Mississippi than in the valleys of the Dyfi and Severn.
I know more about my dad's family roots than I do my mom's, but it's a branch of an old Norman family that's lived in America since 1743 and my blood's a bit diluted on that side now (I'm really more of a mutt when you get right down to it... XD.. Cherokee, Italian, French, German... etc. )
I'd love to learn more about my Welsh heritage though.
Mr. Gold Knight: Leaving such beauty for money... At the moment there seems to be a trend in tracing the Family Heritage. If you knew your Mother's family name and roughly where they came from (we're not that big, you don't have to be totally accurate xD) and you'd probably find something.
However, if the name's like Jenkins, Jones, James or Davis, then you may have a harder time O.o
