I’m Trev Jones from Birmingham, UK and now living in Wales. Together with my wife Debbie, we spent many years researching my Jones genealogy. I hope you enjoy this website as much as I have putting it together. There’s no details of living members of our family history except the stories of the ones who have made remarkable sporting, literary and other great personal achievements. If you have anything to add or indeed see any errors, please let me know. Thank you.
