    trying to track down the birthplace of Alfred Thomas Foot, who married Sarah's daughter Hilda. 1911 just says Glamorganshire, Wales, the 1901 says this

    I can't find a birth registration in Glamorgan ... :( ... ah, yes, it's in Merthyr Tydfil RD as Foote, which includes the following parishes

    Aberdare
    Gelligaer
    Llanfabon
    Llanwonno
    Merthyr Tydfil
    Penderyn
    Rhigos
    Vaynor
    Ystradyfodwg

    Do any of them seem possible? given the vagaries of English people pronouncing Welsh, maybe LLafabon or Llanwonno?!

    Just seen that there is a Royal Navy service record for an Alfred Foot, born Aberdare 30 Jul 1892, which I think must be him. Does that help? @Chimp please take a look ... @Bay Horse too ...

    Hi, Richard Forder Shiner (b1853) is my 1st cousin 3 times removed. He had a son he named the same, then he moved to the USA and became Richard Ford Shiner and had a son there that he called Richard Ford Shiner.

    The reason I know this is because I have a DNA match with a descendant of Richard's USA family.

    I have much more information, if required.

    Hi nice to hear from you, I am glad to have verification that Richard Forder Shiner and Richard Ford Shiner are the same person.

    I am related to his first wife Sarah Clark, so only his first set of children are related to me. I have not so far pursued Richard's second family in the US
