Names of Our Past


When I started my genealogical journey 40 years ago, little did I realize how intimately this process would affect me.  It has brought people from all over the country together.  I’m learning so much about our family.  I thought it would be interesting for my clans to see some of the names of our people.  Because of the huge number of names, I used those that were of my direct lineage as a starting point.  The names in bold are the major family groups.  The italicized names represent the two subgroups of that particular family.  The date, e.g. “(1900),” represents the earliest year in that particular family line.  Generally, the names at the top of each list is closest to the contemporary period.  The names farthest away are of those many decades or centuries before.   Enjoy!
