Specific query: My 3x GG Thomas Evans b.1815 Bache, llangollen, later living in Glyn Ceiriog in 1841 census with his mother Mary. I have his birth record from non-conformist records online and his father is Thomas Evans.
How do I go back further? How do i find out who Thomas Evans senior was or when he lived, I've had no luck with common searches.
General support : I believe the surname derives from Ap Evan and I would love to know how far back my welsh ancestry goes (my dad is fiercely welsh & would it would be an incredible gift to him to prove how Welsh he is!) Any information on how to research would be most welcome, I'm also researching Morris and Pughe welsh family names
