A Few of the Surnames Being Researched
This website was set up to share information and records about our ancestors. Some started from Ireland or England, some from Maine, many lived in Kansas, and settled in California. A few stopped moving when they got to Montana.
For family historians, tracing their footsteps backwards can be an expensive and time consuming process. Even if one does put in the research effort required to get results, it’s always possible someone else has duplicated the work and perhaps placed the documentation in a scrap book which might then be stored away in a cupboard only to be bought out on rare occasions or forgotten about altogether. What a waste that would be! So why not share this information with the broader community! Who knows, maybe descendants will discover cousins they never knew existed. Can you imagine what old family stories, documents, photographs and things they can share, it would make for a richer understanding of who we are as part of this enormous family, and where we come from.
If a surname is familiar but the information you are searching for is missing, let me know as I may be able to direct you to someone who may be able to help you.
This is a work in progress. Corrections and additions are always welcome - with a source of course.
Good luck with your research!
