Thank you for your message. It would be great to learn more of the South Africa connection and if we have a common ancestor. I know that my mother used to communicate with some relatives in South Africa, although we no longer have the letters relating to this. It was only by chance that I managed to trace Walter Samual Davey and Ivy Mabel Davey to South Africa through Ancestry.com and the ship manifest (Kenilworth Castle).
I do have a picture of Ivy that I can e-mail direct with her mother, Helen (Ellen) James. Have a pretty detailed family tree on Ancestry, but still working on the details of the Davey line.
At present, I am busy preparing to start a new job and move to North Wales (Llandudno). I am a geologist and also finishing off a PhD.
