I am trying to trace family in us.
I emigrated to america in 1966 and was born in Swansea, Wales.
My maternal grandfather Randolph Parry was born in America around 1888 in Youngstown Ohio or homestead Pennsylvania.
His father was George lewis parry, his mother was Elizabeth parry ( née Davies) and this part of the family returned to live in Wales around 1902. Some of George’s siblings remained in the usa
I’d like to find descendants of these parry’s in the us. William Arthur Parry b 19 Dec. 1839 Dowlais, Glamorgan, Wales emmigrated to Youngstown, Ohio and then to Homestead PA. One brother Eliezer Parry died in April 1923 in Youngstown. Other brothers: Thomas Lewis Parry, Anthony Parry, John Lewis Parry, George Lewis Parry and 2 sisters, including blanche Evans. Don't know if siblings left Wales or not.

William's son John Daniel Parry emmigrated to Homestead (right outside of Pittsburgh) in 1901 and worked in the steel mills.

I live in Santa Rosa ca, my house survived the recent wildfire
