Unsure if I have asked you before - but were your family in Ferryside of the
parish church - or non-conformist....
If of the parish church I could look in the parish register for you to see
if they married here......
I do not know of the name Nem....wonder if anyone else can help....
I don't know any latin at all.....just a little bit of Welsh, enough to know
if someone is talking about myself....but then they say that Llanelli Welsh
is pigeon welsh....half is spoken in english and half in welsh......!!
