I would like to thank all the people who have contributed to The Williams Family Tree database over the years and to those who continue to do so. Without your help The Williams Family Tree would not be anything like as large as it is. I am very grateful for every piece of information whether it be a name correction, a photograph, a copy of a certificate, some biographical information or a whole data file.
Initially, the Williams family from Aberdovey was the main target of research. Being a very busy port, Aberdyfi produced sea-faring families with many of the men reaching the pinnacle of their trade as Master Mariners. My grandfather, John Davies Williams, served as a 'Boy' aboard the schooner Sarah Davies at the age of 13.
