I’m sure a lot of people alive today, when they hear about the First World War and the men who fought in it, they think of it as just a part of history, something that you learn about in school or see in a film; no connection to who we are now in the 21st century. When you start to look into your family’s history, that’s when you find out that you probably do have a connection with it after all.

Have you ever wondered where your surname comes from? When I look at my family tree and see the various surnames in it, I often wonder how and where they originated.

As I’ve mentioned previously, two of my grandparents came from the Llanelli area; my maternal grandmother, whose family I wrote about in my last column, and my paternal grandfather, who was from Felinfoel.

Once again, in the back of my mind, I had always assumed that if he was from Felinfoel, then probably, so were his parents. Once again I was wrong!

I mentioned in my first column that I had one Grandparent from Buckinghamshire, one from Pembrokeshire and two from the Llanelli area. I also hinted that things aren’t always the way they seem to be!
