Evans Family Grangetown, Cardiff
« on: Tuesday 05 June 12 21:52 BST (UK) »
I am trying to research my father's family tree. I am looking for any details of the Evans family who lived in Grangetown during the first part of the 20th century. My great grandfather William Henry Evans and his wife Eva (nee Domican) lived at Paget Street Grangetown and Eva ran a newsagents' shop. Anyone who may have any information or links, it would be greatly appreciated if you could let me know..
