The only thing which puts me in Ted's and Phillip Jones Griffiths category
is I'm also Welsh I just found out and I'm a photographer.

Joe Evans my Grandfather I heard him described my whole life as "A Limey" by
his Wife my grandma an irish women.
So I thought he was English. Was from Liverpool.

But I go see thee Hugh Grant flick THE ENGLISHMAN WHO GOES UP A HILL AND
COMES DOWN A MOUNTAIN and its set in Wales and over the Bar in the Pub is a
plaque which tells which families get credit:


So I found out Evans is a common Welsh name. Which I'm sure made me the last
to know.
So I started digging in my WELSH roots and aim to go there and check it out
some day in the not too distant future..

I see old Welsh names were Gwalchmai or Gwaethfoed.

Rabiner not on the list.
