Journal by em1977

I've just started to put a family tree together and already I'm stuck. My grandad is unable to help me as his memory is not that good anymore. My grandads name is Vincent george Gauntlett, he was born in Pontypool,Wales in 1932.His brothers are called, Keith(1935), Albert (1928),Frederick(1930),Roger(1950), Mervin, Clem, Thomas (1934) his sisters were Christina (1925) and Beryl. His father was called Albert J Gauntlett (1901)His wife Christina Jones (1903) They got married in 1925, Pontypool,Wales. All i know of Christina is she's one of 22 children.I Have been unable to find out Alberts or Christina's brothers/sisters names or their parents. If any body know of these or could possibly help me i would be very greatful.

Hi, I am Clem's son Paul. Vince is my uncle and the above are my Gran & Grandad.
Did you get very fare with your research into the family ?

Hi Paul,

Thats would make us great cousins!

Yes I've managed to get quite far now. Had a bit of help on genesreunited and a few other sites that are available. I did stumble across welsh records on rootsweb which even gave me details of the Marriages, Christenings and Deaths.Your dad and yourself where harder to find.I've now started doing more research for the tree as I got sidetracked on another tree.

Yeah my Dad escaped from Trevethin/Pontypool just like your Grandad did! Let me know if you want me to ask my Dad anything - his memory isn't too bad ! Would be great if you could share our side of the tree at some stage. My Dad said he only had one sister though (Beryl who died when he was young)- were there really 2 ?

Don't know if you are on facebook but if you are look for emma lutkin and you should find me.I can give you my email address on there and once i've checked the tree i can send you what information I have.
No they do only have one sister just mum said one name and i remember grandad telling me a different one.Her name was actually Christina Beryl.The picture that i have on here i could've sworn it was grandad but he says its actually roger as he wouldn't have been in wales at the time the picture was taken.

Hi Em, I'm Lindsay gauntlett and my grandfather was Frederick Lesley Gauntlett who was Albert Jeremiah Gauntletts younger brother. I remember my grandfather telling me he was one of 7 brothers and two sisters. I know where Albert used to live and I can remember his sons Freddie and Roger. I believe they did building work / decorating and Roger artexed my parents home. In that photo the likeness to my grandad is amazing but Roger had dark hair but my grandfather was fair. You are my sons third cousin. Your dad my 2nd.

Hi Lindsay,

Its been 6 years since I posted this article and I have got very far on the tree. It is my mothers side who are the Gauntlett. Her father is Vincent, son of Albert and Christina, brother Of Roger and Freddie. Looking through my family tree that makes you and I, 2nd cousins once removed. I also have your parents as Alan and Jean.

It's Christina's family I am having trouble in finding. I know she was one of 22 children. Sadly 11 passed away before 1911.

It's nice to hear from another family member.

Thank you Noggin,I have all the information. Christina is the Daughter of William Alfred Jones.In 19911 they lived 54 Machine Meadow, Pontnewynnd, Monmouthshire, Wales.I also found 11 of her siblings.
