I first became interested in my family history after a trip to the United Kingdom in 2009. No one previously within the Matthews – Davies family, to the best of my knowledge, had ever taken the time to sit down and record who was who within this family tree. 

It will remain, as most family trees should, a work in progress thereby allowing me to keep adding bits and pieces of information that come my way for many years to come.

I have decided to use a web-log to record the history and photographs that I find rather than on paper that way it remains current and available to any member of the family wherever they are in the world.

The blog is arranged so that access to what I call static information is available on every page. Here you will find stuff about the actual family tree in a chart format, the main tree branches that I have identified, significant villages where members of the family lived, UK census dates and my contact details.

Listed on the right of the page are the main tree branches with links to further information about each branch including where available, photographs, census records, birth, deaths and marriage records.

So, have a look around and then e-mail me, les.matthews54@gmail.com with your feedback and any suggestions you might have. Or just to say hello!

Looking forward to hearing from you!
