I live in the USA but my father was born at 54 High Street in Pontycymmer in 1906. I am lookig for some information about my grandparents and was so glad to find this website. I sure would appreciate any help that can be provided.
I am Colin Thomas Davies, a native of Bridgend but have lived in the Bristol area for most of my life. My father Cynlais was born in Pretoria St, Blaengarw in 1913, and his father Thomas Henry was born Gwendoline St in 1888. My mother Gwyneth Margaret Thomas was born 1918 in was is now 14 Heol Llangeinor, this became the post office during the 1950s. My maternal grandfather Jenkin Llewellyn Thomas was born in Moelgilau Fach cottage in 1881, his father was born 1837 in Felin Arw, the son of the last miller there. My grandmothers came from Lonlas and Pontardawe. I am very pleased that the GVHS has been formed and look forward to meeting and corresponding with fellow members.
