Edward Jones - Grocer

Edward Jones - Emily Moody

I was looking for my own but found the above well set out page from another Jones Family Tree

This is the family of Linda Margaret Jones (the author) and Richard Prys Jones. A great deal of time has been spent researching our respective Jones families, but if you are related in any way and are not mentioned, please get in touch. Links to connected genealogy websites have only been made with the express permission of the website owner. This website is a work in progress and will (hopefully) be updated and expanded in the future.
