Hi, I'm trying to find relatives in the UK. My grandparents were names as above, as far as I know born in Glamorganshire area of Wales, bprn in 1893, married in 1912, and emigrated to Australia in 1916. James' father was Samuel and mother Elizabeth Thomas while Margaret's father was I believe, named John.

I would very much appreciate any help you can give. Thank you.
