Ann (Annie) Williams drowned aged 80 ? in Pwllheli 1980 ?
« on: Friday 10 April 15 01:35 BST (UK) »
I am looking for Ann/Annie Williams born around 1900 who drowned picking cockles in Pwllheli in approx 1980.
Hoping for clues to check that I am researching the correct Ann Williams as I have no information other than at some point she lived in Penrhos.
If I can get an accurate date of death from local knowledge/newspaper report than I can at least get the correct death certificate.
Many thanks

Hello Jacksnana

Welcome to Rootschat!

Maybe ask your question on the Wales board? There might be more chance of it being seen there by someone with local knowledge.

Here is a link to the main Wales board. http://www.rootschat.com/forum/wales/

Or even better, the Caernarvonshire board. http://www.rootschat.com/forum/caernarvonshire/

Thank you for such a prompt response. I've retyped my request onto the Wales board. Is there an easy way to post the same message on different boards ?

Hi jacksnan

Welcome to rootschat  :)

It is best if you do not repeat your request on lots of boards as it could result in us duplicating information others have already found.  The Wales board is probably best for starters  ;)

are you sure she was aged 80 - there is this record -this lady died in april/may/june of 1980
Annie Jane Williams  born on 9th May 1905
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVZ9-LB55
so this lady would only be 75
 ;)
ADDED...I can't see another one who died in Pwllheli in 1980

Not sure of anything, all dates and age approximate, but hope the report of elderly lady drowning whilst cockle picking might identify the correct person.
Thanks

If you put your message on the wrong board sometimes a moderator will notice and move it.  ;D
