I appreciate that you have taken the time to stop by and check out my Genealogy Blog. I am known as the Root Digger. Anything that has to do with my own Ancestry will be found on this blog. I also love orphan photos, so I take the time to post those as often as possible. UPDATE: I have started another blog on Blogger to share in a more personal manner my ancestry from all four family trees…My Adopted and Birth. They are so much a part of me and I want my readers to connect with me through my journey. Come check me out at The Ancestors Have Spoken.
The surnames I am researching have some relations to my ancestry, either through direct family ties, Collateral ties, or because various individuals had direct interaction with my ancestors. I find that knowing more about the people that lived and interacted with my ancestors reveals a greater picture of their lives. “Man does not live on an island unto himself.”
Some of the Surnames that I am researching are: Anderson, Bacon, Battle, Becton, Berry, Blackledge, Braddock, Bradley, Brown, Buggs, Bunn, Busby, Cannady/Canidy/Canady, Carter, Castillo, Chadwick, Chavez, Clough, Collins, Cully/Culley, Dove, Ellis, Espinoza, Fenner, Fischer/Fisher, Foreman, Frazier, Gaudette, George, Gilliam/Gillam, Godette, Gray, Gravely, Green, Hairston/Hariston, Harkley, Harp, Hartley, Hernandez, Higgins, Hodge, Howard, Humphrey, Howard, Kennedy, Laughinghouse, Loftin, Millikin, Mitchell, Moore, Munoz, Nelson, Peters, Porter, Rodriguez, Sanchez, Scott, Singleton, Tatnall, Taylor, Wharton, Willoughby, Wilson, and Whittington, Zavala.
This is not a complete listing of surnames, however they are a bulk of my research, and as time goes on I may update this list.
The areas of my research are: North Carolina (Craven Counties such as New Bern, Havelock,), Winston-Salem, Massachusetts (Worcester, Boston, Cambridge) Mississippi, Virginia (Henry Counties), St. Louis, Missouri; New York, Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, and many more.
My hopes for this blog is that it connects me with individuals searching for the same ancestors. Please do not hesitate to contact me and let me know if you found something interesting or that you think we might be family. Please leave a comment on the comment page for me and I will return a response.
