Jones History Website of the UK

Jones History
Debbie & Trev Jones of Birmingham, England have put this website together in the hope that they can all help each other find our Jones ancestors from the UK.

Jones Births, Baptisms & Marriages of Bristol UK
The following data has been very kindly sent to us by Carole Fry (nee Jones) who has collected these Jones records from various Bristol churches. Further information on each record can be obtained by emailing Carole. Please allow at least a week for Carole to provide more details on any of the Births, Baptisms & Marriages that you are researching, as this is a very useful database for any Jones researcher seeking details of their ancestors in this part of the world.

The most full-featured SSDI search engine on the internet

Joan Young wrote:-

RootsWeb's SSDI allows you to search without a name...and I'vealways cringed at the number of people born on my birthday (sameyear) who are already deceased (959 to be exact).

If you haven't tried doing that alarming search in the SSDI, try it.
Use the Advanced Search page to do this type of search.

Pontypool Wales

Watkins & Gunn began serving the public as two separate law firms, Watkins & Co., established in 1870, by my grandfather's brother Thomas Watkins (b: 1847 in High Meadow, Llanvair Kilgeddin d: JUL 1934 in Trouville, Pontypool Road ).
and S.P. Gunn & Gunn established in 1936.

Both firms were well established traditional practices dedicated to providing help and representation in all areas of the law.

In 1985 the two practices amalgamated to form the present day practice of Watkins & Gunn. In 1988, we moved into Glantorfaen House to take up prestigious offices in the centre of Pontypool, from where we have continued to expand to meet the ever-growing needs of our clients.
