i believe my family is related to andy willimas, singer , born wall lake 1927

i believe his grandfather came from wales, uk, in the county of carmarthenshire

i am trying to obtain records of his birth certificate to establish his parents surname , so that i can trace when the migration actually took place and the family tree connections in wales

i am hoping somebody can tell me how to find the source of these offical records and where they are held.

many thanks

david williams

Here is a site that mentions being able to get non-certified copies: N C H S - Where to Write for Vital Records - Iowa but I would follow their suggestion, calling for up-to-date info. The Department of Public Health site only talks about certified copies and you need to be pretty closely related to get those.

However, Andy Williams Birthplace Outside View (broken link) indicates his parents were Jay and Florence (Finley) Williams. Florence was the daughter of Andrew and Louisa (Robinson) Finley. Louisa was the daughter of Margaretta and William Samuel Robinson.

Here's another family history site: Andy Williams Family History (broken link)

See if this info will help you. I know his real name is Howard Andrew Williams.

<Andy Williams Family History (broken link)

Also, ancestory.com and <Iowa Birth Certificate, Death Record, Marriage license and other vital records

I went to Branson last year and went to is restaurant Moon River Grille. It was great!

Good Luck with your search
