Good time for a review of surnames.
From page two of my (this) Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog (link upper left sidebar), these are my family names, thru 3rd GGparents, plus a few:
Butler, Carle, Christensen*, Duncan, Fad, Kinnick/Kennick, Krag, Miller, Mortensdatter, Nielsen*, Preston, Rolen/Rolin, Simmons, Smith/Schmitt, Soderstrom, Sorensen, Williams
*Same line - Danish naming convention explains difference.
Additional lines researched, further back:
Firestone, Jones, Kimmerling, Kirk, Lee, Schwyhart, Vesterstrom
[I didn't put in links, but you can scroll down to my labels, find the surname, and click to get all posts - in theory, at least - with that surname.]
Families are Forever! ;-)
