Hi and welcome to all members wherever you are from. I live in North Wales and am a Professional gardener.  I'm a Hughes by birth and my wife was a Jones so so you don't get much more Welsh than that.

My other interests are Postcard Collecting, Photography, Web Design and most sorts of music, but especially Blues both modern and pre-war.

Mine and my wife's ancestors are from Anglesey, Gwynedd, West Midlands, Bedfordshire and probably many other places I haven't come across yet.

Hi,

I am a nurse & live in Shrewsbury; I am also a Hughes by birth & I have traced my fathers family back to Anglesey, a place called Llechylched. I am keen to find out more & have visited the Anglesey records office in the hunt for my ancesters. Searching for Hughes' is difficult but I am grateful it is not Jones!

I have Cornish ancesters on my mothers side & have found that side easier to research.  

I am hoping this site will give me some new leads & tips on where to look next.

Regards Sheila. :)

Hiyah Sue, hadn't noticed you had joined as I''ve been a bit busy just lately. If you start a new thread in the look-ups section I'll see if I can help you out.

I've pushed this thread to the top as a reminder for members to add a little about your research interests either here or on your profile. This is because you may find other members that are researching in the same area or even the same ancestors and you may be able to help each other.

Please just post profiles on this thread and ask questions on the "look-up" thread
