  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: General Family History

    Hello folks. This is just a reminder that this forum exists. As well as general questions on family and local history; it's as good a board to use as any if you've 'lost' someone, somewhere and want to begin tracking them. I'm sure that you know the sort of thing I mean, an ancestor was...

  7. Single lady evacuated.

    The mother of a friend of mine was evacuated during WW2. She was 19 in 1939, not married and had no children. What work this lady did during the War no one knows. So we've been speculating as to why a single woman would have been evacuated to Lamphey, Wales from Camdem in London. Any ideas, anyone?
