Family names I am researching include:

 

House

Taylor

Hopper

Walther

Thomas

McElroy

 

The Taylors and Hoppers are most recently from Alabama but I think there may be some NC connections. McElroy could be Alabama, Texas, and Michigan.

Great!! I'll list some of mine now:

 

Roberson

Smith

Miller

Moore

Bailey ? maybe

Welch

Ferguson

Hurst

Lambeth (secondary - in connection with Hursts and Lambeths)

 

 

My maiden name is Miller, I dont have a lot of info but what I do know is they settled in the Louisiana/Mississippi area when they came down from through Canada from Germany, they were originally Muellers but didn't want anyone to know they were German so they changed it.

I have Hearn's in my line. They came from England. They entered the USA through the Mid-Atlantic states. They migrated to Georgia and Alabama. After the Civil War they migrated to Texas and Oklahoma. If you think we have a match, let me know. Big Daddy D

Hi folks. Just noticed with surprise that this forum section existed. I'm now using a program called RootsMagic that I love since it connects directly with the free LDS database (familysearch.com). For years I've used free PAF but they've discontinued it recently since they can't keep up with needed software advances.

 

I've charted my bloodline back to the 100's which is kind of exciting. I just recently determined that I'm connected to the British royalty through my father's line (Hicks, Stanclift, Treat) which got me curious about the current royal family of Prince Charles & Kate so I worked the line forward. Turns out I'm their 15th cousin (1 removed). Cool.

 

I'm also related to Brigham Young (prophet in LDS Church) and farther back to a Witch (Mary Bliss Parsons) involved with the Salem Witch Trials. She actually defended herself and won early on. Guess that's why I exist. My grandmother also told me I had an infamous Horse Thief in the family, but I can't find out the details since a cousin stored our grandmother's genealogy records (50+ years worth) after her death and can't be bothered accessing or sharing them. What a loss of researched information.

 

Some of the surnames in my line that I'm interested in are:

Holmes

Snow

Budge

Morgan

Phelps

Wichman/Vickman

I do hope you will be able to find who you are looking for. I know it took my family years and years to find some and we are still looking for our 'Jones' 3rd Great-Grandparents. It just drops off with our 2nd great grandfather.

So far I'm looking into

 

Brown

Finley

 

I figured I'd go as far as I could there before following the maternal names. So far I've been able to get to the early 1900's and found a great uncle who died on the USS Johnston during WW2. Does anyone know how I can learn how he died? Some died on the ship, some on rafts of battle injury but most of those who died were alive in the water but disappeared.

Military deaths should be a little easier to find because of their record keeping, so you might start at http://www.archives.gov/research/military/ and go from there. Also http://www.ancestry.com is a good source of document copies sometimes even if you don't subscribe. Good luck.
