I'm looking for a marriage between Mary Edith Hughes born 1874 Llanfairfechan & Owen Jones born 1874 Penmaenmawr. Their first child Elizabeth Alice was born 1897 Penmaenmawr in the Parish of Dwygyfylchi & on the 1901 Census they were living at 5 Goat Terrace, Penmaenmawr.

Then on the 1911 Census Owen was a widower living at 4 Goat Terrace & it states he had been married 12 years. Mary & Owen's last child William Owen Jones was born 1903 Penmaenmawr so Mary's death would have been between 1903 - 1911.
Owen went on to marry the housekeeper mentioned on the 1911 Census Mary Ellen Riley in Bangor 1911 4Q.
I would be really grateful for any help or suggestions.

I have several DNA matches on Ancestry.com such as 621cM, 265cM, 255cM to name but a few, who I know are descendants from my 2nd Great Grandparents. Yet when I click on the ThruLines 3 of those are showing 0 DNA matches & that I am the currently the only DNA tested descendant connected to this ThruLine. How can this be?

The Common Room / FindMyPast Subscription Renewal
« on: Friday 19 January 24 14:29 GMT (UK)  »
I have had a bit of a shock at this years subscription price for Find My Past, the Pro package has gone up to 184.99. They are offering a 15% reduction for auto renew, but that still seems a lot more than I have paid before. Has anyone else renewed recently ?

I would be very grateful for any improvements that can be made to the quality of this wedding photograph, particularly the fading on the left top, to tone down the brightness of the lady's white blouse sitting next to the bride & also the baby sitting on his mum's knee

World War Two / William Smith Prisoner of War WW2
« on: Sunday 12 November 23 14:26 GMT (UK)  »
I had hoped to find some information on Fold 3 as it is Free this weekend, but not having much luck. Please could I ask for help in finding information for William Smith he was a Private in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. I have found two newspaper articles stating William had been reported to be a prisoner of war. The first article dated 27/6/1940 states William's wife Lily had been officially notified Fusilier Private William Smith who had been serving in Norway was missing since 26/5/1940. The second article dated 12/9/1940 states Fusilier Private William Smith of 5 Jubilee Terrace Conway is reported to be a Prisoner of War in Germany. He was in C Company 6th Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers.
William's father Thomas Smith died 26/6/1943 & in his Obituary it mentions his son is a prisoner of war. I would be most grateful for any help in finding William's records.

Sadly this photograph is slightly out of focus, if it's at all possible I would be really grateful if someone could make it clearer & also repair the few minor blemishes here & there. Thank You.

« on: Monday 12 June 23 14:31 BST (UK)  »
I'm hoping someone can help find a Marriage between William Henry Hake born 1848 & Emaline Ramer born 1853 of Manchester, York County, Pennsylvania. Their 1st child Bertha was born 1876 Manchester, York County.

William's parents Daniel Hake & Anna Mary Boose & Emaline's parents Jacob Ramer & Cassandra Frey.

 This is a second attempt to find this marriage we had no luck last time. I have asked this before on Rootschat but I thought perhaps with new information being added all the time we would be lucky this time.
