I should have said that Frederick J Adams was my father's uncle. Also that Fred and his family were living in Wales.

Regards (Florence) Miriam Lehmann nee Adams Australia

Now, please, can we have some dates

Unwise to post your full name details on this insecure site.

That's why you have the option to choose a board name...................


Reggie Report 29 Jul 2013 23:19

Only one birth on freebmd for Frederick J with MMN Jones..............and it wasn't in Glos

Births Sep 1920 (>99%)
Adams Frederick J Jones Crickhowell 11b 146

Is this the right person?

Why have you 'marked as answered' without adding any feedback?

It will now be assumed that you require no further help................

Have you tried doing any research yourself?

Sorry, Reggie, I am getting used to the process. I am researching as much as I can and put a message here to see if it opened up any other leads.

I certainly couldn't get the death iinformation for Emrys or Ceinwen. Thank you for that.

regards MIm. :-)


Reggie Report 30 Jul 2013 12:01

The deaths are too recent for freebmd..............I found the info on FMP

Ask as often as you need..............we love to help.

But do tell us what you know.............we don't like looking for info which isn't needed.............

Ceinwen appears to have had four children............

This was the eldest

Month of registration: April
Date of Birth:5 April 1930

Reg no: 489

His marriage is on freebmd


Reggie Report 30 Jul 2013 12:08

It doesn't seem that anyone else on GR has these people in their tree, so you may find the only chance of contacting living relations is buying a death cert........and finding the informant's details


Florence Report 30 Jul 2013 23:07

Thank you Reggie. I hadn't thought of the death informant. Will follow up.
I find GR very good and we do get responses if the names are in our trees. However that depends on others from the same family background being on GR too, or having similar interests, doesn't it.
I found information about the brother of Frederick and Tom Hedley as well as some of my Johnson family that way some years ago after struggling to find them in records.

Florence :-)
