Hi Jim
I have a connection with the Morgans from Coleford, it is believed that my step-fathers great-grandfather Thomas Morgan owned the opencast mines in coleford but lost them due to gambling.. and that his wife was a crippled seamstress to the court..

Proberbly heresay..

Hi, I am a decendent of the Dobbs family from Little Dean living in New Zealand. If you would like the NZ family information I can share this with you.
I'm new to this site and not sure how it all works yet!

Hello Dobbsy, sorry for the great delay in response but I have been away researching my birth family in the borders of Scotland for a few years and not been back for quite some time. My Gran, the lady who I grew up with was Bessie Matilda Townsend nee Dobbs of Whitecroft b 1901. I am back working on my Dobbs again right now as I am helping a cousin with her offshoot kin so just had to visit one of the best forum web genealogy sites on the net hey:-)

I can be reaches at kithnkinconnect-at-shaw.ca
Would love to hear from you?

Cheers Slowhands for the great job you do:-)
