Sorting, Surnames Saturday
Yes, I combined them together. Surnames are a big topic for bloggers right now and sorting them out family by family is part of the game.
This week I myself have received a manuscript on a part of my husband's ever elusive family, shared by a cousin just up the coast from here.
Yes, Ydna played a major roll in resolving some major answers for this lineage. Once put on the right track it was amazing the family we found so close and that fit into much of the family lore.
So I am going to be sorting the lineages from the manuscript and sharing with others over time.
On my parents family lineages I also have sorting to do of documents and photos. Dad went in 1995 and Mom went Jan of 2011. It has been a year, so it is time these things were addressed.
A blogging acquaintance in Rhode Island posted her surnames for several generations for others to see.
I am only going to post the ones I am currently looking at and working on, so I can be able to respond to
anyone that may have the same lineage.
