Sandra;
"California Birth Index - Does the mothers maiden name Pritchard mean anything. ?"

Finally I am able to answer the above.  Yes !! I found the connection between cousins Gwladys Cowles and Dorothy Mulligan

Gwladys's parents: Albert Cowles married Anna Pritchard at Abergavenny Dec 1895.  Anna was a sister to Lily May Pritchard.  Lily May was an aunt to Gwladys Cowles

Now all I need do is find when Lily May travelled to the US, name of ship etc

Many thanks for all the hard work you've put into this.  I'm not as quick as you, but I do try.  Kind Regards, Roy
anything and everything to do with the village of Brithdir, near New Tredegar in Gwent.
