I’ve been researching my family history for as long as I can remember. As much as I try to stay organized and follow one branch at a time, I rarely succeed. I suspect this blog will be similar.
I imagine I’ll be jumping around from topic to topic, thought to thought, branch to branch. But I’m going to pretend I’m organized and start out in a logical fashion.
The logical first thing to post, in my estimation, is a list of all the family names I’m interested in. Subsequent posts will narrow them down as to location and time frame and I hope to get into posting short histories of the various branches as soon as possible. But, to begin with, here is my (not quite definitive) list of family names I’m interested in:
I have no doubt the list will continue to grow. I have no doubt spellings will change. I have no doubt this could take me a lot of time.
But I also have no doubt it will be fun!
