Hi Uncle Doug

Bet you are glad that your young nephew Trystan has 'come good' at last

He has 'dun well' - but its difficult to keep him on the straight and narrow.

Anyway; Welcome to Rootschat and the genealogy boards

I bet trystan has done all the research for you

Trystan,
the link above for wales on the web doesn't seem to be working?
I tried the actual site and looked for emigrants but no luck?
