Hi, My name is Alan. I first started tracing my family tree over 25 years ago but it all went on hold due to another time consuming pastime. I have recently revisited the past, and am looking forward to posting once I have fully collated and reviewed my research so far. My immediate research will be the surnames of my parents MAIDMENT (Somerset then Cardiff) and MAHONEY (Monmouth, Merthyr Tydfil and Cardiff). Other surnames I will be researching will be MORRIS (Chester/Cardiff), PERKINS (Aberavon/Neath), VILE (Langport/Somerset) and BALCH (Batcombe/Somerset). Thanks for reading.
