The eldest was Richard who I believe married a Mary jones in 1960 and they had 2 daughters before separating. Richard was a minister in the forces then went on to run a chicken farm in Anglesey.

red mail Charlie Hubbard
Charlie Hubbard was a gunner in the English Navy, but he was from Scotland. He served in first world war. The English boats arrived in Holyhead, so he would have been in Holyhead in 1918 when he met Annie (Catherine Ann Jones) as their child Olwen Hubbard Jones was born in 1919. She was probably premature as she only weighed 4lbs at birth. Apparently Charlie was already married. Any help in tracing Charlie would be hugely appreciated.

I am trying to find any information regarding my Great grandmother's family. Her name is Lizzie Hughes (never had a middle name) and was born in Holyhead, Wales in 1883.

While I can trace them once they are in the United States, there are WAY too many similar names that I have not been able to wade through and find them. If any one has any information at all regarding the above family, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

red mail Jones - Olive, Lewis & Kate - Rock Street
Olive Jones was my adopted father's birth mother. Originally from Rock Street, Holyhead. Olive was born April 1918. My father was born in Liverpool in 1943. She had been working as an attendant at the LMS buffet. My father was her second child. I've traced a possible marriage cert. for her parents who were living in Bryngwran 1898. Lewis' father was Hugh Jones and Kate's was David Jones. Any help appreciated!
My father's family lived in Woodbine House, Newry Street, in 1930. My grandfather changed his name to Williams, which we think was his mother's maiden name. We believe that originally it was 'Jones' and two of his aunts in 1930 were 'Ellen' and 'Mary'. Because of the change of name and the number of 'Jones's' it's really difficult to trace back the family. Any help would be most appreciated.
