Looking for Grandmother's birth mother
Posted by Katie92 from Portsmouth on the 10th March 2017
We have a family mystery - My grandmother was born in 1936 in a mother and baby home in Liverpool and put up for fostering in Wales until she was 7/8 and then ultimately for adoption.
We know from her birth certificate that the mother was called Catherine Williams, and she was listed as a domestic/general servant in Cwmbach, Aberdare. We have no idea how old she was at the time but we assume she was unmarried and relatively young. my family are very interested in what happened to her. My nan remembers her mum visiting her when she was little (before she was adopted) and seems to think she was in the women's land army during the war, but this can't be confirmed.
Just thought I would post here in case anything in this story rings a bell with anyone, or has any suggestions of where we could look. We are at a bit of a dead end in our search.
