Hello all, I would like to find more about my mother’s family in your area, her name was Sarah Maud Honey, born in 1916, at Merthyr Tydfil Glamorganshire, her mother was a Lewis, during the war she was a nurse at the Cardiff Hospital, which is where she meet my father a New Zealander, after the war she sailed to NZ and they married, she had a younger brother Thomas John Honey, who also moved to NZ, but apart from that, I only know that their was another sister which died in her early 20s, and another brother and I think his name might be Stan.
My mother had a very sad life, she missed her mother, her home Merthyr Tydfil Wales, and I think she made a big mistake in leaving her homeland.
Im looking to see if I can find any cousins, I’m 71 now so maybe there are some remains of the Honey family still in your area. My grandfather worked in the coal mine.
I live in Australia now so I’ll add my email address firstname.lastname@example.org
