Trying to locate a family. by David John Troughton (Member 10203406) on 23-Feb-2007
I am searching for details of a family that lived in Ferndale around 80 years ago and may still have decendants living there now. The family name is James, the only information I have is there was a daughter Dorothy Mary Irene, she had two other siblings and their mother died when they were quite young, probably in their teens.

'Cliff' Jones by Michael Hunter (Member 10092603) on 9-Nov-2004
This guy (Real name Clifford Lee Jones)'works' at the Bell centre in Blaenllechau & had recently had his picture in the Rhondda Leader. Be very wary of this character. He has been under suspicion of kiddie-fiddling for a number of years. There's not enough evidence to convict him, but he will slip up one day hopefully. DO NOT LET YOUR KIDS ANYWHERE NEAR HIM....   
  • Re: 'Cliff' Jones by Michael Hunter (Member 10092603) on 9-Nov-2004
    He's also a Member of the BUFFS, who as you know are like all secret societies do a good job of protecting & hiding these Characters. So Bro. Cliff Jones. Your card has been marked.
