My Surnames

My ancestors are from England, Scotland and Ireland.
I made a list of all MY SURNAMES.
Are any of these names on your tree?

I put a "d" for lines I have developed quite far, a "u" for mostly undeveloped and an "s" beside the names for which I am stuck in my research. There are so many with a "u" I will never run out of ancestors to research. I have my work cut out for me!

  1. I have tried to make a list of all the surnames of grandparents as far back as I can go - Divided it by the first three generations before me as those are the ancestors I am aiming to highlight in my Canada 150 Family Roots Project. The second part of the list has the surnames that are other branches beyond the three highlighted generations. At one point some of those ancestors will be written about too.
    Like the idea of of the lettering of names so it is easy to see where you are in your research :D

    1. It took a while, but I was tending to forget about the ancestors of the grandmother greats. Some names I had even forgotten about! Now when I am stuck in research of the moment I can turn to one of the forgotten ones.

  2. Dianne, Can you tell me where I can find the records of the inmates of the Verdun Asylum, I have been trying for ages to find out about my great uncle Thomas Fraser/Frazer, Thank you, Cathy

    1. I really don’t know, but I would think they would know at McGill. They took over in 1946.
      There was a message board about the hospital at Ancestry and a person with username bking118 posted in 2013 that he/she saw a book or records... you may try to contact the person.


Leave me a note to tell me you were here! Thanks for visiting.
