  2. Mary Winifred Andrews nee Bryant (Winnie) b1916 Cardiff - missing daughters

    As with her brother, Pat Bryant, I hope this blog might find her daughters, who were taken care of by relatives after the death of their parents (from TB). Contact between them and my family was lost - they could have been adopted. I have had to omit their names in case they are still alive.

    Thanks as always to FTF members who helped with research and photo restoration:

  5. Lydall Family...

    It hasn't been easy but I am at last getting somewhere with my Lydall line.

    My inital search began when I purchased a birth certificate for my gt grandad, and discovered his mums name was Harriett Lydall, she was one of 10 children, born circa 1817 to James Lydall & Mary West in Whitwick Leicestershire, England.
