Hi,wondering if you can help me?
by Dawn Williams
I hope you don't think this bold of me but I was wondering if you are affiliated with or familiar to Pentraeth at all?
Sadly my mam passed away 13th of this November and I'm trying to find some information on my family history.
My mam grew up in Pentraeth. I believe she was adopted by people who owned a big farm at the top of a hill. I think I remember an old lady used to run a quaint old shop at the bottom of the hill.
My mam's name was Gwenfron Elizabeth
(Williams i think back then). She used to be a nurse at the old C&A hospital in Bangor before she met my dad, Gerald Robinson
from Bangor. My sister Heather
and I used to visit the farm with my mam when younger.
I also remember an Uncle Isaac, Aunty Mona, Aunty Carol and Aunty Freda, who had wild red hair.
Sorry my information is strange but they are my childhood memories. My sister and I were taken into care on and off from a young age, hence the scatty information.
There seems to be a bit of a mystery surrounding my family background. I don't wish to upset anyone or intrude after all these years. It's just that the natural hunger to find out more about my family has somehow become more powerful after sadly losing my Mam.
If you remember any of the names or the farm I would be ever so grateful for any information.
Thank you once more,
I am so sorry for your loss and for the time it's taken to respond. My own Mum is not too well and so this website has had to remain dormant for lack of time.
I'm afraid I do not come from Pentraeth but will make a general plea to anyone from the area to get in touch with me and I will pass on contact details in confidence.
If anyone out there knows something please do get in touch with me in the first instance.
