Hello Alan. A good place to start if you want to trace where you grandfather was from originally would be to trace his marriage record to your grandmother. This will include his father's name and occupation and confirm his age at the time. You can use that information to trace him on earlier records such as (if he was born before 1921 or 1911) on the 1921 and 1911 censuses . If he and your grandmother married before 1939, and you have an idea of of there they may have been living in 1939, then you can try to trace them on that year's Civilian Register - his entry should include his birth date. This will help you to trace his birth record. The information from all these sources will help to establish where in south Wales he was born.
logo

Eilir Wales101

Hello Alan. If you want to establish where your grandfather was born, then a good place to start would be his marriage certificate that you can order from the General Register Office. That record will include his father's name and occupation, and it will confirm his age, so you can work out around when he was born. If he was born before 1921 or 1911 you can try searching for him on those years' censuses – censuses include information on individuals' birth places. And if you have an idea of where he was living in 1939, try searching for him on that year's Civilian Register - his entry will include his birth date, and with that information you can then try tracking down his birth record, which should confirm where exactly in south Wales he was born.

The origins of Welsh and Irish Morgan families are different, and so, unfortunately, an Irish origin theory would not be relevant to the majority of Morgans who hail from Wales itself. In Wales, the surname almost entirely derives from Welsh patronymic roots - i.e. it comes from the given name of an ancestor who would have lived (depending on where in Wales that ancestor came from) generally somewhere between the late 16th and late 18th centuries (sometimes slightly later than this), and was adopted as a fixed surname by different families during that time. This would be the same for most other typical Welsh surnames, such as Jones.
logo

Eilir Wales101

You can start by searching for your father on the recently published 1921 census, and to trace his birth certificate and his parents' marriage certificates. Details on those sources should then help you to trace your grandparents back through time, and to link back to Evan Richards, via 19th century censuses and certificates.

To find out more about David and Evan's maritime careers, start by consulting the welshmariners.org.uk website to see if they are listed there, and (if so) what their entries contain. Some pay-to-view genealogical sites (such as www.ancestry.com) host Master Mariners Certificates and other maritime sources which could be of help.

John Waters est dob 1820 from Killbeggan Westmeath?.
I cannot trace anything, this info was obtained from a birth cert. He came to Australia prior to 1846, as he had a child that year. He then married in 1851 to Margaret Halloran (daughter of Patrick Halloran dob1805 Tulla, Co.Clare & Mary Duggan dob 1815 Tulla, Co.Clare)

It is rumored that this line came out of New England to Roanoke.

The coast like colonial VA is nortorious for inner bred marriages as Coastal NC and the SE Virginia area near Jamestown. I am from the aunt of Josephus of the N&O and FDR as I had a gt. uncle names Charles Clifford Shannon. What are your thoughts?

One of these sons was my father, Dawid Daniels, My dad fought in the Second World in Egypt against the British. He served in the army formed by the then Apartheid Regime (Government) of South Africa. I was born in a small town named Upington. It is nearby the well-known South African town Kimberley where diamonds were discovered. It is also home of the famous Big Hole. I have three bothers and three sisters. One is a medical doctor. Two of our seven children are teachers. Of the seven of us, two has since died. We are five still living in South Africa. I think my father and grandfather and great grand father has their origins in Ireland, but I am not sure. It will be interesting to hear from other people worldwide with the surname of Daniels.

Eilir Wales101

Hi Debra. Try, first of all, to trace your great grandfather on the passenger lists (arriving in the US). Do you know around when he emigrated to North America from Wales, and do you know around when he was born? If so, then you can narrow down your search by using those details. You can consult many passenger lists via sites such as www.ancestry.com and www.familysearch.org. It depends on when he arrived, but if he was living in the US or Canada during the 19th century or early 20th, then you should be able to trace part of his history through the censuses. The information you will uncover should help you to start building a picture of his life and to move your research on from there.

So I think they got married and have 4 children so one of the children wish is black decided to come back to his mother land and he decide to leave here , that why we are here ...but I really need to know more because I love my family Name .

Eilir Wales101

Hi Adekunle. Tracing details relating to Philip Hughes could be difficult without more specific clues relating to around when he was born, or travelled to Nigeria. If he and his wife came back to Wales or the UK, and married there, then you can search for a marriage, but you would need to know his wife's name. Some missionary archives exist (the largest held by SOAS, the University of London), and you will need to search their catalogues for any potential reference to Philip. Another source to search would be passenger lists for evidence of Philip returning to the UK (available from 1878 onwards), but you will need to have an idea of around when he was in Nigeria, and/or a rough idea of when he was born.

logo

Eilir Wales101

Hi Sandy. You could start your search by tracing information relating to Frederick - if you have an idea where he was born and/or lived - then you could look for him on the censuses (1911 and 1921 if he lived in the UK) and the 1939 Civilian Register. If he had brothers and sisters, then the censuses should reveal their details. With those details, you could then potentially trace their descendants if that's your aim, using documentary sources (birth, marriage certificates etc).

One of the albums is dedicated to his brother John (Jack) and one to his father Patrick. I am very interested to find out more about his life, and any descendants. I’m thinking he married a Margaret McBlain in the UK in 1883 and they had a daughter Margaret Lucy Grainge born in 1884, but I didn’t know anything about the South African family!

So I Decided to write all the Roger's and Rodger down in the trees that I have DNA matches with. A huge task I have around 500 maybe due to the fact that I asked to keep the 6 and 7cm that were taken out Aug last year. I have found I have 36 DNA matches to the Thomas Roger's trees of the Mayflower I assume that my connection was in the late 1500s, I also have DNa matches to the Giles Fitz Roger's, Scotland. The Donegel , ireland, Rodgers and Pattons, Then some from Somerset,Eng. The Oklahoma Roger's, Virginia Roger's, Massachusetts Roger's, Maryland Rogers. BUT I have know idea were I fit.

Eilir Wales101

Your visit to Abergavenny does indeed suggest a link – that could be direct (i.e. a direct ancestor of yours moved from Abergavenny to London) or the relatives you speak of moved from London to the Abergavenny area. To investigate that link, start by researching your great grandfather, Henry Joseph Jones from Lewisham, to find out who his parents were – trace his birth certificate and try finding him and his parents on the censuses. Those censuses will tell you where Henry's parents were born. If it turns out that his father or both his parents were from Abergavenny, then you can start to research their siblings and descendants – this should tell you who those relatives were who are buried in the Abergavenny churchyard, and lay the foundations fo find out if there are relatives still living in the area.

Eilir Wales101

It's quite likely that Robert was born in the county of Glamorgan, especially if you know for sure that his father was born there. If his Australian death certificate is the most detailed kind and therefore includes birth location details, then this could (if those details were recorded of course) help you to pin down where in Wales he was born. Alternatively, have you been able to trace his arrival in Australia - some Australian passenger lists include a reference to where an individual was from. You could also try to search the historical newspapers (via the Trove website – https://trove.nla.gov.au/) for his obituary which may include a reference to where he was born.

My 2nd great grandparents came from Ireland to the USA. do not know when/what port they immigrated to or when/where they were married, but the first census I find them in is as Thomas Williams and Mrs. 1860 Leavenworth Kansas. The Mrs. is Mary Fling b. 1825, 1830 or 1835 varies on census' and Thomas Williams either 1830 or 1834. First son was James born in 1855 Bloomington, Ill, Daughter Winifred b. 1857 and Charles Arthur my great grandfather 1858. The census' list them both as from Ireland, until 1930 my great grandfather lists his parents as from Northern Ireland. The only thing I know about Thomas Williams comes from the 1860 Federal Census taken in Leavenworth Kansas and the 1865 State Census taken in Leavenworth Kansas, I never find him again after that date. I have not located his immigration information or marrige information. Coincidentally there is a Thomas Williams and Anne Eliza Fling Williams in 1860 Bloomington, Illnois Census, they have a son Charles Edward, but dates and ages Do Not match and can't be in two places at one time. would love to learn where they were both from in Ireland.

logo

Eilir Wales101

Hi Margaret. As you have a reference to your great grandfather's birth place, and an idea of around when he was born, then you can try tracing his birth certificate, which should be registered under the Powell surname. Does the census you have found on which he is named also include members of his family - his parents and/or siblings? If so, if you wanted to trace your great grandfather's family, then you can start to trace those relatives and descendants by using the information on that census. When he changed his surname from Powell to Price, then it's possibly unlikely an official record was made of this - as there is no legal requirement to register a change of name (although some do by deed poll).

Pierce

He is famous to our Pierce clan although does not meet the standard! :) I have been desperately trying to find his immigration or naturalization papers to show when he came to the US. Upon his death it states that he resided in the US for 43 or so years. He must have arrived as a teen and met and married Johanna Boyle or Doyle. This is what I have thus far: Stephen F Pierce was born in Ireland, the son of Jennie (possibly Mary Jane) and Frank or Francis Pierce. Stephen married Johanna Doyle (or Boyle). They had seven children in 18 years. He died on June 24, 1906, in Camden, New Jersey ..... I'm happy to pay for help in finding the county or area in Ireland where they came from. I have done DNA both on Ancestry and Uploaded to GedMatch ... My fathers kit number is A128092 John Pierce. My father is 84 this year and is desperately looking for some 'hope' that he will find more about his family roots! :) Thanks, Rebecca Pierce....

Hi Tonianne. If you go to the death indexes (e.g. https://www.freebmd.org.uk/), and input John's name, narrowing the date down to 1925, then you will be able to establish his age at death. This will help you then to narrow down your search for him on the censuses (he should be on the 1921, 1911, 1901 and, probably, previous censuses). He should be listed on those censuses with his wife, and on earlier ones with his parents. Those censuses will also tell you where he was born. You could search for his marriage to Elizabeth (search via https://www.freebmd.org.uk) - that certificate which you can order from the General Register Office will establish who his father was.

Wynneth (Peters) Mullins

I know very little about my Peters ancestors. There were only 3 Peters generations before me in the US. My grandfather Claude had a twin sister named Maude. My father's name was also Claude and my brother was Claude Peters Jr. The Peters family has lived in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas over the years. My name is Wynneth Faye (Peters) Mullins. My maiden name is Peters. I know very little about the Peters family. I do know that my 3x great grand parents are Michael (20 Sep. 1796, Offerlane, Laois, Ireland) and (Seram) Sally (Egan) Peters (22 May 1807, Drum, Roscommon, Ireland). They lived in Tipperary. Their 4 children Lucy (12 Nov. 1832), John (22 Mar. 1835), James (10 July 1837) and Thomas Peters (18 Jan. 1839) were born in the years between 1832 – 1839 and were baptized in the Roman Catholic Church, Dovea, Drom & Inch, Tipperary, Ireland. St Mary's Catholic Church in Drom was built in 1829 for Friar Thomas Mullaney, whose name is inscribed over the front door. I have found the information of each child’s baptism in this church. I believe that the parents of Michael is William and Sally (McEvoy) Peters. And I believe the parents of Sally Egan are David and Sally (Sara or Seram) (Jackson) Egan and I believe Sally had 7 brothers and sisters total. Sally Peters born 22 May 1807 in Ireland. Thomas Peters was born 18 January 1839 in Ireland. The relationship between Sally and Thomas is mother and son. They sailed from Liverpool, England to the Castle Garden, the Port of New York on the Ship: The Shamrock. Both listed as servants in the ship register. They were listed as Passenger #188 Sally Peters, age 48. #189 Thomas Peters, age 17. The voyage left Liverpool, England 15 May 1856 and arrived in New York 9 June 1856. The next information is that Thomas came to Texas and married Mary Elizabeth Hogland or Hoagland in Paris, Lamar County, Texas on 05 August 1859. Thomas was in the United States 3 years before he married Mary. I wonder how they met and if they knew each other before Thomas arrived in the US. I have never found Sally Peters in the US. I don’t know if she brought Thomas here and then went back to Ireland or if she stayed in the US and perhaps married someone. I have so much history about our family from the time Thomas and his mother came to the US and up to now. I would love to share all this information with you if you would only let me know about you and the family that stayed in Ireland or where ever they moved to. Please contact me. I would love to know all about the family that stayed in Europe. Thank you.

Hi, I'm trying to track down my Ellis ancestors in Co Longford and Co Leitrim in Ireland. The family may have originated in Wales and immigrated to Ireland in the 17th or 18th centuries, although this is not certain. There is a possibility that they were tenants or employees of Lord Longford as there is family folklore suggesting such connection. A John Ellis b.C1736. d C1822, my 4th GGF, lived at Newtown Forbes in Co Longford, his son John C1781 to C1844 and his grandson Henry b. C1821 who married one Mary Kirwan b C1815.

Griffiths

Hello fellow Griffiths, I am Ronelle from Cape Town South Africa, I am trying to find out more about my father's side of the family. I never really knew my father, he left when I was 2 years old after being married to my mother for 21 years. He in turn did not really know his father either, I don't even have a name of my grandfather. Is there someone willing to help me find out more about him. My father was Walter George (Wally) Griffiths, bright red hair, sky blue eyes, I would really love to know more about the Griffiths family name, any information is much appreciated and welcomed.

Eilir Wales101

Hello Ronelle. To discover more about your father's family, start by tracing his birth certificate which should establish his parents' identities. Do you have an idea of around when and where he was born? If he was born in South Africa, then you can approach the local authorities there for his birth record. If he was born elsewhere, then there may be a record of his arrival (or departure from, for example, the UK) on a passenger list - this may give you a clue as to where he was living before he arrived in South Africa. Delving deeper into his early history and that of his parents would depend on where - which country - he was born, and so tracing his birth record would definitely be the first step to find out more.

So interesting to read about an Evans family emigrating to Ohio. That state was one of the main destinations for Welsh families during the 19th century, and the early 20th century. Early in the 19th century many Welsh families arrived in Ohio from the county of Cardiganshire, joining other families from another mid-Wales county, Montgomeryshire. Later, many families from the industrial areas of Wales – Glamorganshire and Monmouthshire – settled in that state. It sounds as if your family formed part of this latter wave of emigration?

Hi Janie. To find out more about your family history, try gathering information on your father and his parents. If you are based in the US and if your father was born before 1950, then you can search for him on the US censuses. If you know where he was born, then his birth certificate will establish his parents' details. With those details you can then follow their history back through the censuses and relevant birth and marriage certificates. If they emigrated to the US from the UK, then the censuses will indicate that for you.

You can try searching for them on a passenger list to begin with (arriving in the US), although the earlier someone emigrated, the less likely that a passenger list exists. If they married in the UK prior to emigration, then you could try to look for a potential marriage on the searchable databases, such as via www.familysearch.org. Not all marriage entries have been transcribed/indexes and appear there of course, but a huge number have, and so it's a good place to start.

The information that you will be able to trace with regards John Lewis partly depends on when he was born. If you have an idea of his birth year, and if that was after 1864, then your best chance of gathering information on him and his family would be to try to trace his birth certificate, concentrating your search on the Donegal area. That record would give you his parents' details. If he married in Ireland, and you know his wife's name, then you can also try to trace his marriage certificate which would give you his father's details. Indexes of Irish birth and marriage registrations can be searched via www.familysearch.org. If you find potential entries for John there, then you can order the certificates from the Irish General Register Office.

I lose the trail there though, because I am not sure of his birth records, or the names of his parents. He was found on the streets of London, practically a street urchin or orphan, and shipped to Canada about age 10 (in 1903) to be adopted or indentured with a Canadian family.

He took up a large piece of land in the Junee NSW area and farmed sheep. His property was called Geralgambeth. As far as I'm aware, he was a free settler. I have a fair bit of info on his life after he arrived but none prior. Any snippets would be greatly appreciated. Regards

Roberts (Roberson)

Although it is more probable that Robert's in Ireland are actually from Scotland, and arrived during the Plantation of Ulster. According to my DNA Scotland is were my paternal side came from. We are basically Robertson's.

Roberts (Roberson)

Being born Welsh and having Welsh blood on my maternal side, this is not correct for all Roberts families. Fixed surnames in Wales is a late development for the majority. The patronymic system meant that the son often took the first name of the father as last name of the son. So it was only from when Henry VIII decreed that fixed names should be used in Wales did fixed names started to became the norm. This took quite some time. Thus not all Roberts's even in Wales are related. Roberts is not only a Welsh name, but English Sottish and Irish. In England it's first recorded in the Doomsday book recorded in Latin as Filius Roberti (son of Robert) Of Oxford. Roberts's in Ireland were descended from Clan Colla. (O'Heart). In Sc

Rice

The farthest back I've been able to trace my Rice line is to John Rice (1822-1857), prob. born in North Carolina. He was married to Mary Ann Ferguson (1833-1902). They were the parents of Mary Jane Rice, Mary Elizabeth Rice, and my g-g-grandfather William Jasper Rice (1854-1907). I am trying to find out who John's ancestors were and where they came from.

Evans/Evins

I would like to verify the birthplace of my 3rd ggfather, Alexander R. Evans/Evins, born 29 May 1761 in possibly Seagahan, Armagh, Ulster, or his father, Alexander Evans born about 1720, died about 1770 in Fincastle, Virginia. The name Evans is of Welsh origin, and the family probably emigrated to Ireland from there and then on to the United States. I would like to be able to trace the family back further with any information you can give me.

Hi Michelle. To discover more about your grandfather's origins and those of his family, start by researching his early life - if you know around when and where he was born, then start by ordering his birth certificate. If he lived in the UK and was born prior to 1921, you can also search for him and his family on the censuses, which will confirm where he and his parents were born (if he lived in the US, then later censuses are available for consultation there). You can then move on to gather details on his parents' parents. If the censuses confirm his parents (or his parents' parents) were from Ireland, you can then move on to search for them on earlier records - such as the 1901 and 1911 Irish censuses - if they were living in ireland at the time - and for their marriage and birth records.
logo

Eilir Wales101

To investigate your grandfather's origins, first of all, try tracing as much information about your him as you can. Start by obtaining his birth certificate - if he was born in Ireland, it can be ordered from the Irish General Register Office. Irish birth indexes are online on sites such as Ancestry. His birth record will establish his parents' identities, and you can then use this to trace information relating to them. Your grandfather or his parents may be on the 1901 or 1911 censuses, which will tell you where they were born. All this will form the foundation of your research, and as you move back in time you may be able to gather evidence which may or may not suggest Welsh origins. If your Jones ancestor was from Wales, then a *potential* theory could be that he served with a British army regiment that was stationed in Ireland during the 19th century, married a local girl, and then settled there.

Our first Rogers family member who traveled to the colonies was Matthew Rogers, Sr ( I think he was born abt 1714 or so). We have located an early land transaction between him and Lord Fairfax in Virginia dated June 10, 1749. Matthew purchased his land with coinage from Pennsylvania (William Penn Quakers). I am not sure if he was from Ireland or Wales but his son James was a Baptist Minister in 1785 Kentucky after the Revolutionary War. I think his father was William Rogers and his grandfather might be Jonathan Rogers. These assumptions are based on an article I located from an Irish Professor about ol

(Part 1 of 3) The Davis name is found in the British Isles, but one of its origins according to DNA is from the north-west coast of the Emerald Island. One Davis story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup A1] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. This Davis surname origin is from a Northern Ui Neill [R1b-L513] tribe. The Cenél Eoghan and the tribes of Donegal conquered much of Ulster (Derry and Tyrone).

(Part 2 of 3) Cenél Eoghan will expand across northern Ireland with their cousins Cenél Conaill and the Northern Ui Neill between 500-800 BCE. The clans of Finn Valley have the same DNA as people from Gwened in Brittany. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Davis story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Scotland as they form part of the Dalriada. Descendants of their tribe will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Kingdom of Brycheiniog will take part in an invasion of Brittany, France around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Pritchard story begins in pre-history Ireland but this descendant will then move to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. A relative and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.
