Hello
i am new to the forum and would like to trace my paternal grandmothers family as i know nothing about this side of the family. Her name was Grace Owen born 24.3.1890 in the Bangor North Wales area and died 1967. She married Herbert Stanley Thorpe and lived in Shrewsbury during the rest of her life.
I am waiting for her birth cert to arrive to confirm i found the right family on the 1901 census, but think her Father and mother were john and sarah and sister Elizabeth and Jane.
I have a family tree for the Thorpe side if anyone is searching this name, and i have already researched pughs and James in the family

Hi Cwmprysor,

I have just found the Family History UK site, hence posting a reply 2 years later! We must be cousins. My father is John and remembers his maternal grandmother(our great-grandmother) from visits as a child. He may able to fill in some gaps.

Regards
