No perfume today, just very friendly helpful staff. I was shown the volume of medical notes, with everything ribboned off except the entry I needed. I don't think there was a guillotine waiting for...

Saghatelyan (sometimes Saghatelian) seems to be a fairly common Armenian family name. Perhaps the ղ (voiced uvular fricative ġat-Laut) was lost in transcription. It is sometimes realised as ʁ (a...
That's our man. Clever chap, too, getting a grammar school scholarship.
I can't find any talk of him enlisting in the jingoistic columns of the local papers, though. He would...
The medal cards tell me that John E Jones enlisted into the Welsh Regiment (Pte 34388) on 22 Apr 1915, and first saw action in the Asiatic Theatre on 30 Aug 1915. His war ended under KR Para 392...
I know. All I can find is the birth entry, 1901/11 censuses and the Mesopotamian marriage. After that, zilch. One of the Ancestry public trees is mine, and the other took the information from my...
A motor engineer, one John (Johnny) Ernald JONES, born Godrewaun, Glanamman, Betws, Carmarthenshire (LLANDILOFAWR) 1894 gets married to Isabel SAATILIAN, born c. 1894, in Baghdad, occupied...

No, Helachau, I have not been able to check the physical Llanybydder register. I'm relying on Cofrestri Plwyf Cymru // Parish Registers of Wales, 2000, since the original registers are mouldering...

Peter: I had looked at the 1786 David Jones baptism at Rhyd-y-bont, but it strikes me (a) as too late, (b) there are no Benjamins further down the family, (c) there are no Independents in this family...

I know from the 1841, 1851 and 1861 Censuses that my forebear David JONES (an itinerant shoemaker) was born in Llanybydder in or around 1782. He married Ann JEFFREYS on 4 October 1806 at...

Here's the cause of death on the Death Certificate.
I think the top lines read "1a Cerebral Softening, 5 months" then "no P.M. / Certified by D Finlay, M.D.".
Can anyone help with the 3rd line,...

Thanks, Peter. The second database entry says that the Clinical and Personal records for the period in question are at the Glamorgan Archives. It doesn't state whether they're open or sealed, though....

Would there have been an inquest following a patient's suicide at the Mental Hospital in Bridgend in 1929? If so, where would it have been held and would it have been reported in the newspapers?

I'm still hoping that someone will be able to help me with this query.

James Edward RYAN died in the Cape (Wynberg district) on 8 Jan 1911. Although the death record image on FamilySearch says he was 47 years old and born in England, I have good reason to believe he was...

The David Watkins with whom Watkin Watkins is later buried is named David Jones in the Llandysul burial register. This is strange as the MI is specific: "David WATKINS, Darrenfawr, plwyf...
Hi, Sue. Thanks for pointing out this index on 1820settlers.com
Do you know if any groups have been transcribing the Civil Death records for the Western Cape area, especially Cape Town?
Yes, I think that is how it reads.
They're still alive and well in 1891, living at 13 Lower Cross Street, St Woolos, Newport:
Henry HOBBS - Head-M-70 - Bridgewater, Somerset - English only
Mary HOBBS - Wife-M-60 (!) - Newport, Mon -...
Henry Hobbs married Marianne Davis at Christ Church in the Caerleon area of Newport, Monmouthshire on 4 March 1839 (NEWPORT vol 26, page 96, or see the parish register on FindMyPast). Marianne's...

Re #9. Sorry, I meant to say that Watkin Watkins's will was signed on 9 February 1843, just 12 days before his death on the 21st.
I still think 2/6d to be a strange sum. Other farmers in a similar...

I didn't realise that the National Library of Wales had digitised the wills proven at the consistory courts up until 1858, and placed them free to view online.
But now I have found the will of...

Thank you, Janet. Yes, St. Tysul must have gotten around a bit; I didn't realise about the Llandysul, Montgomeryshire, either.
Horeb is the mother chapel of a very large area in southern...

Thanks, Megan and Janet.
It's my tree you saw on Ancestry, Janet (!), and as you'll both see this marriage is the very last one recorded in the old style register at Capel Cynon, i.e. no abode, no...

My 3rd-gt-grandparents Evan and Dinah got married at Capel Cynon, Llandysiliogogo on 15 June 1837, a fortnight before the new registration system began.
I know that Evan was born in Llandysul...
Helachau, I don't think we can blame the enumerator this time! I checked the 1911 Census, and the family are living at 10 Ogmore Terrace, Nantymoel (Llandyfodwg).
Incredibly, though, Frank Ball...
