Okay, my wife and I are trying to put together our family trees. So far she's having much more luck... and she's American! Can't have that! lol. I'm currently living in America, so I don't know if that's affecting the sites that come up when I search in Google or what, but I am having the most awful time.
Here's what I know.
My grandfather, William Leonard Williams (went by Leonard (Len)) died in/around Llanelli (Llanelly), Carmarthenshire (Dyfed), Wales around 1975/6 sometime. I'm not sure his exact birth year, but I know he was in his 50s when he died. He has a sister, Marian, who is still living, and he had a brother, Eddie, who is deceased (early 2000s sometime). And I believe they also had a brother, Neville, who at some point moved to America, but is now also deceased (for at least a couple of decades, I believe).
My grandad, Len, was in the navy during the war and afterward married my gran, Mary Campbell, who everyone calls Molly. They were later separated, but never divorced, before his death.
I can't find their marriage info, so therefore, I have no info on who Leonard's parents were. I know his sister, who lives in Bynea, has a sign on her house, "Morris Villas" and I somehow seem to remember my dad or someone mentioning Morris maybe being someone's maiden name. So possibly my grandad's mother was a Morris? I've looked up Morris as a possible maiden name and I have found children (William L, 1921, Eddie M, 1923, Neville L, 1927, and Marion I, 1930) belonging to a father Williams and a mother Morris, but I have no way of knowing if they are the correct people or not, as I have not found any census info yet.
I'm waiting on my dad or my uncle to reply with what they know, but until then, I thought maybe someone out there has some information? Anything would be helpful.
