I am looking for members of my grandfather's family - Albert John Drinkwater Williams.
He was born in Llanelly on July 19, 1894. I have his birth certificate and it says
Vauxhall Cottages. Albert left Wales approximately 1924 to come to Canada. His father
was an owner/part owner?? of a coal mines and expected Albert to take over. Albert
refused for whatever reason a left on less than pleasant terms. He kept in contact with
his 6 or 7 younger sisters but since his death in the early 1970's, my family has lost
Here is the information that I have:
Father: David Williams
Mother: Sarah Drinkwater
Sisters: Edith, Ida, Ruth, Win, Dorothy, Agnes - not in order but Ruth is the youngest and
Albert is the oldest.
I am interested in David and Sarah's ancestors and as well the sisters' children.
I have been searching various Wales related websites but have not yet found what I am
looking for. Gareth has given me a few starting points - Thank you, Gareth. Does this
sound familiar to anyone?
