Hi all...

I have a site www.jonesgenes.com and part of it is dedicated to
tracing all of the different Jones families that lived (all their life
or intermittently) and died in Llanfairfechan. Another is for families
of Caernarfonshire. From the front page menu you'll find it under "Data
& Information"

My own line of Llanfairfechan Joneses includes three separate Jones
families married into one another. 1) the Joneses of Talarbont; 2) the
Joneses of Refails; and 3) the Joneses of Henar Farm. There is a
potential fourth married to a child (#47) of the Henar Farm Joneses...
My direct line are the first one--those of Talarbont. But my site deals
with ALL Llanfairfechan Joneses; as well as having a page for other
Llanfairfechan families and other Caernarfonshire families. My
Talarbont Joneses are married into a family of Jones that comes from
Llangelynnin, but I believe them to originally be from Llanfairfechan.

My own family tree can be found at:

Any and all help/input appreciated,

----------Joneses of various Refails,
Llanfairfechan---------------------

The above Catherine Ellin Jones is marries into my Jones line. Her
parents were from two separate Llanfairfechan Joneses as well. Her
father, William Joneses line starts with William's grandfather. I will
continue the numbering schema from above to ensure that each has an
unmistakeable identity:

31. William Jones (b. abt. 1787 in Llanfairfechan [Birth year
calculated from age of 64 during 1851 census. Birth place was given.])
married abt. 1803 (based on first child's conception date. Assuming
they didn't marry much earlier than that because they were only 16-17
yrs old when first child was conceived.) to Mary Thomas
(Maiden name given on children's birth registries)
children:
32. Sophia Jones (b. 26-Mar-1804 in Llanfairfechan)

Dwygyfylchi; d. 28-Sept-1859 in Llanfairfechan and buried at St. Mary's
