Hannah Evans - Help!!!
Desperately trying to find the exact date of birth of Hannah Evans. The only info I have is from the IGI Family Group Record which states birth about 1852 of Kenfig Hill. But the 1901 census entry contradicts this as it states the place of birth asYstradgynlais. I have however, been unable to find any records at all to enable me to order her birth certifcate. Can anybody help? She later married Thomas Harding about 1873 in Kenfig Hill.
