THEORY: Long-term bilingualism

Does anyone have literature tips or ANADEWS on
long-term bilingualism, i.e. when one population
uses two or more languages for many generations.

I guess Greeks in Asia Minor are one ANADEW.
Jews in Eastern Europe another, well known.

Was it e.g. often the case that only the men
were bilingual, but not the children and women?
