Somebody from the Channel Islands was in Lower Swell, Gloucestershire recently trying to make contact with any of the Hathaway family. Please get in touch if you can.

Sorry, Pamela, but I don't rate your chances with no name to work on.

You can't even use search trees

hello Pamela

Were they from Sark as Dame Sybil Hathaway was very prominent in WW2. Try posting/searching on rootsweb CHANNEL-ISLANDS.

otherwise try the Channel Island family history site.

regards Jill
