Stoob,

I'm going to speak with my twin later today and see what we can come up with. You are very good at what you do and with the right information I think we just might be able to locate my birth mother and brothers.

Prefer to read a local book than watch celebrity television Pete.
As stated previously the gals know more than me, I'm not on any of the ancestry sites.
Seen Byard in both Abertillery and Llanhilleth but it's a question of which books with Gallivan. You could spend a week on the 1915 book it's that thick, but hopefully something will come up.

Yes are Grandmother Violet at some point did move from Alma ST to Queen St . But our main focus is to find out about our birth mother Nora Gallivan and our brothers and if there is any more sibilings  in the family . At this point do you think we should contact the British adoption agency or could you recommend another agency  that could help . I still need to speak with my twin and see what information she received from the Nazereth House. If we can et the needed information my sister and I would make a trip to Abertillery.

Thanks again to all

Nazareth House in Cardiff was bequeathed to The Sisters of Nazareth by The Marquis of Bute.
It has links to other Catholic organisations in both Cardiff and Swansea.
I would imagine the answers will lie in Cardiff and not Abertillery.
Will have a look at the telephone directories for South East Wales, down the reference library next week, they only go back to 1980 but they may turn up Gallivan's living in the area, then and now.

Hello.

I was adopted from Nazareth house in 1953. My Mother who was also Nora Gallivan. I later found two brothers Roger and John Gallivan, and then a sister called Elaine. I have also been looking for twins in America, Peter and Anne Marie. I would be very interested to  hear off you.
My name is Maria Blunt (Barrett), was Gaynor Lorraine Gallivan.
Thank you.
