Incidentally, I had mentioned that Malad, ID had the largest per capita population of Welsh descendants outside of Wales itself. Wikipedia confirmed this piece of trivia. I found this out a couple of years ago when a friend of mine participated in their Welsh festival, which happens to begin this year on June 30th.
