My father Albert John Maddox known to every one as "John" lived all his life in the Rhondda Valleys of South Wales. Most of his working life was spent in the coal mining industry. As far as i am aware he was an only child. My mother, Maureen Mitchell also lived her life in the Rhondda and has one brother Dennis Mitchell. John and Maureen have six children that i am aware of, Diane, Christine, Janice, Julie, Mary, Lynne. I have little information to go on with regards to ancestors but i am hopeing i can start to build, on what information i have. Any information would be appreciated.
