I am a new researcher on the Cottrille/Cottrell/Cottrill name which is connected to the Gen. Geo Pickett family tree. I just started working with this tree not too long ago. Don't have a lot of information yet but I am positive we are connected to the Pickett tree.

How is everyone's Cottrill/Cottrell research going?

Has anyone found a connection between the Kittrell's and Cottrell's or Cattrell's in the U.S.?

I'm surprised there aren't more Cottrell researchers on genealogywise.

Karen: Sharing family photos is a great idea. I'd be interested in seeing them. I'm working on getting the few I have of my ancestors scanned in. Once I do I can post as well. Do you have a tree on ancestry or another website?
Comment by Karen on July 24, 2009 at 10:05pm
I am willing to share family photographs with others. Perhaps when the paper trails disappear into thin air, someone will recognize faces in photographs, or have their own photos with the same people in them....just a thought?

Please let me know if you have any ideas for organizing discussions on this group.

Welcome, Mark. I know that our Cottrell's have been traced back to England. The problem is that I have not yet traced the line to that point myself. I am still searching in the U.S. and came upon a brick wall at my 3rd great-grandfather. I'm still trying to get the genealogy records from a distant family member - once I do I might have more info. Did any of your Cottrell's end up in the U.S.?
