A public thank you
« on: Tuesday 10 October 17 23:30 BST (UK) »
Went to Glamorgan Family History fair last weekend, looking to find when my grandfather moved from Tylorstown to Cheltenham, a window from 1911 to 1934.

Came away with a new relative no one knew of. great-grand mother remarried after G-grand fathers death. All crystal clear and proven thanks to very helpful chap from Rhonda Library. Think we were both "buzzin" after this. Used electoral records and grave internment records to prove the link

Library staff are very nice people and we should always use them as he had records not online.

Always good to see a positive response.  AND there are a lot of very knowledgeable people around - all we have to do is find them  ;)
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
