Smith family (Newport south wales )
« on: Tuesday 04 November 14 00:28 GMT (UK) »
Hello every one I am trying to trace my grandmother connections, she was Ethel May Smith, I think  some where in her family were the Venn's  from Sedbury  Chepstow and the weirs from Sedbury, not to sure I think a family called Staples linked to our family of the Smith's
