Trying to find Martinsson

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

My family believe that the father of my grandfather(William Maxwell Martinson, of Cardiff/Barry Glamorgan), was Norweigian and spelt his name with a double 'S'. He possibly came from Christiansund. His children include a son Elexzza Martinsson who disappeared. Any Martinssons who trace their family back to South Wales please make contact.
