Hi
I am looking for any relatives of my dad's and as I have only just started searching I thought I would try with very little information !
My great grandfather was Rees Hopkins & my great grandmother was Mary Jane Hopkins , my grandfather was Idris Hopkins (Born in Cliff St Mountain Ash in November 1891) my dad's name is John Arthur Hopkins. We do not know of any other relatives ! Would any of these have links to your family tree ?
Thanks very much Mike (Hopkins)

Have you looked to see if any of these people are in members' trees on here?

You have not put any dates, other than for Idris, and was Mary Jane born as Hopkins, or is that her married name?

Thank-you

Added:
Have you put these people in your tree on here, so others can find you?

Have you put your tree on GR?

EDIT: It would appear that you have not.................

Have you looked in 'search all trees'?

Have you done any research using freebmd?,

I will start to put my family tree together in the next few day 's !

I am searching on two fronts ! My dad's father's side of the family Idris Hopkins (Mountain Ash) and his mum's family from Dorking in Surrey (originally from Edenbridge) his mum was Evelyn , her father was John Thomas Brooker who owned the British Timber Works in Dorking.
My dad is 88yrs old in a week or so and apart from his mum and dad he has never met any other relative !

Does he know that Idris appears to have had a brother?
