The Common Room / Re: 1921 census
« on: Thursday 06 January 22 13:40 GMT (UK)  »

I got on as soon as it went live at 12.00am, but am quite disappointed…
The only new info that I got was that my Grandfather William James Wilson was 61 years and 4 months old in June 1921!

Anyway... Is anyone planning to start searching at 1 minute past midnight?

Quite likely!

I completely understand the reasons for charges, and personally would be prepared to pay a lot more if it gave me any clue at all to the origins of my ever elusive paternal grandfather!
However, I’m not holding my breath, as he seems a past master at obliterating any clues at all about his antecedents…

As the date finally nears, I have been thinking of you and hoping that mysterious grandad appears on the 1921. I will be keeping my eyes open for you to post that you've finally found where he came from.

Good luck

Many thanks Carol,

And thanks for all of your help with trying to find him over the years.

I’ll be sure to post on here if I find anything at all!

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Ancestry DNA Delay - No New Matches

I agree Queenie,

It does seem odd to not put something on the Site advising about the closedown, but perhaps they thought that people might start asking for refunds?

I only found out from posts on a Facebook Group.

Incidentally I’ve had about a dozen new DNA matches through this morning, but all under 20cMs.

I hope that your results come through soon.

United States of America / Re: Looking for Hannah Reece in Ohio

Rees seems to have been spelt in a variety of ways in the USA!

All of my Swansea Rees’s were just plain Rees.

And yes, Rees is a very common name in Wales.  :)

Fascinating Sandra, - thanks so much.

I knew that two of my Grandmother’s sisters emigrated to the USA and I’ve followed Sarah Anne Phillips, (nee Rees) to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but I hadn’t known that John Rees, (born 1859) the eldest of the siblings,had also emigrated to the USA,  but to Ohio.

Best Wishes Romilly.

Thanks so much Sandra, - greatly appreciated!

I can see the link now, John Rees was the elder brother of my Grandmother Margaret Rees. His Parents were Evan Rees and Margaret Davies, myGreat Grandparents from Morriston, Swansea, Wales.

That explains the DNA match between myself and John Rees’s GreatGranddaughter in Florida!

Romilly  :D ;D :)

Many thanks RJ137, I was forgetting about family search records!

I was hoping to find a link back to England, but it’s not clear where Hannah Reece’s Parents were from…?

Just noticed that they were both from Wales!!
