I am posting this message at the request of a friend. On the death of her mother, Selina Mary French (nee Davies) my friend found herself with old family photos of which she has no knowledge. Most of them are studio portraits dating back to Edwardian times and are probably of relatives who were originally from, or based in Towyn, Merionethshire Wales UK.
If any one out there in the Genes Reunited community is researching this family please make contact and I will pass your details on.

Jo,
If you have a date of birth for Selina Davies, and dates of birth for her parents then you can see who else is researching this family by entering the names in the Search/Search All Member Trees, above right. It would help to have her grandparents etc to cast the net wider.
You can then make contact with them to see if they are the same family.
As you have not put the name and origin of the family in your title, it is unlikely that anyone who is related will see your message.
There were probably quite a few unrelated Davies families living in Towyn, unfortunately.
