Moving from Cardiganshire to Cardiff
« on: Tuesday 07 November 17 15:10 GMT (UK) »
Hi Nice People,
     It appears that my great grandparents and family moved from Aberffrwd to Cardiff in 1894.
     How do I find out exactly where?  Their names were David and Mary Davies, so not an unusual
     name. I think they may have ended up in the poor house but I have no proof. I think they had      3 to 5 children in tow when they moved
     Any help or advice would be great!  Thank you - Keith

Try 1901 Census.   With such names, children's names would help to try and narrow down the search.
