My Surnames

I admit it. I have ancestor bias. I have spent an inordinately disproportionate time on the following surnames, my favorite ancestors, the ones I think about as I fall asleep at night:

  • Bradstreet, Broadstreet (England >MA)
  • Bursley (MA>ME>MN)
  • Day (ME>MN)
  • Spencer (MA>ME)
  • Stanwood, Stainwood (England >MA >ME >MN)
  • Wasgatt, Wescott, Westcott, Westgate (ME)

My other primary areas of research are:

  • Rogers (TN>MO>AR>TX)
  • Scott (ME>MN)
  • Simpson (NY >WI >IA >MN)
  • Sisco, Cisco, Scisco (NY >WI >IA >MN)
  • Thomas (ME)
  • Uphouse (Germany >PA >NE)
  • Veland (Norway >IA >MN)
  • White (ME >MN)
