The Ancestry of the New England Bogdonoffs:
Barber, Cooley, Devoe, Dick, Hill, Johannson, Peterson
Tracking the Maternal and Paternal Lines of the New England BOGDONOFFs
|After investing a significant number of hours (days, weeks, months...) into my
husband's genealogy, I figured it was time his branch got its own set of web pages.
This effort was begun on 13 March 2005. I will slowly be fleshing out this section with the
data compiled, and the research questions yet to be answered.
The paternal branch is divided in two:
- Russian/Polish Jewish immigrants who arrived in Boston in the mid 1890s. (Bogdonoff, Halpern, Glassman)
- Swedish Lutherans who arrived in Boston in the 1880s (Johannson, Peterson)
The maternal branch is predominantly Colonial, but also in two sections, both arriving early/mid 1600s:
- British Isle "Protestants" escaping the Church of England (Barber, Cooley, Dick, etc.). I have also started
Philip's Emigrating Colonists, a list of names of those of Philip's ancestors who emigrated to New England in the earliest days.
- Protestant Huguenots escaping Catholic France (De Veaux, Devoe, Deveau, etc.)
