My grandmother was Evelyn Foster, nee Morris, and her 2 brothers were Tom and Charles. My grandmother moved to England but her brothers stayed in Wales and both lived in Merthyr Vale; Tom in Crescent St and Charles in Taff Street. Charles died in the 60's and as children we often used to go and stay with his widow, my great aunt Phyllis. I'd love to hear from anyone who knew them and who could give me some pointers in tracing my grandmother's family tree. Many thanks.
I am trying to create the memories that I don't have of my mother Ethel Lewis who was born in 1924 and lived at 58 Mount Pleasant, Merthyr Vale.  I know she attended the primary school which is a couple of minutes' walk away. If anyone has any information or memories of this era I would be really interested.
