About Me

I  live in upstate New York and am a retired Mechanical Engineer. My father's father came from Wales to Newfoundland around 1905, married there and settled in Granville, New York, following work in the slate mines. I am very interested in tracing my welsh ancestry, which originated in the Caenarvonshire area.

About Me

I am traveling to Wales for my first time in August, 2017, for 3 weeks. My mother was completely Welsh, and I have the names and dates of the original family members who left, and where they were born, etc. Of course the last names of my mother's family are Jones, Evans, Hughes and Watkins. The first name I have is Evan Watkin, born at Llanerfyl, on April 6, 1733. His child, Evan Watkins was married to Margaret Davies on May 11, 1799. One of their children, Edward Watkins, born in Llanerfyl on March 26, 1815 and his wife, jane williams, born in Llanerfyl on August 11, 1821 were married in Radnor, Ohio, after both their families had moved to the states. Evan Jones, of Synod, born September 5, 1808, son of Evan and Sarah Jones, os also a relative, on the other side of my mother's family. Of course, I'd love to meet any of the descendants of these folks when I visit next month.

I am a psychotherapist, live on Vashon Island in Washington state and have two grown children, Barry Ross and Lindsey Ross. I am coming to Wales, in part, to explore my roots and my sense of a deep and magical connection to Wales.

About Me

I'm an American with an English mother and an (adopted) Irish grandmother, and I just found out that my mother's biological parents were Welsh.  I've done plenty of American genealogy, but I know nothing about researching in Wales and need to learn!

Looking for information about Evan Morgan b. 27 Feb 1900 - although year of birth maybe somewhere between 1896 & 1900.

Very little is known. No birth certificate can be found for an Evan J(ames) Morgan b in Cardiff.  He came to Australia before 1922 and join RAN. Married in 1927 in Tasmania.

His mother was Gwen? and his father was also Evan. They are believed to have lived at Pentrych. He may have been a merchant seaman.

Any help gratefully received.
