Hi everyone, 

been awhile since I've been here , anyways , I'm researching the following names, Mathiesons, Runnals , Hoods , Churchills , just to name a few

Comment by Ann Dibble Call on October 15, 2013 at 3:47pm

On the Knight line, what are the names for the Knight ancestors - maybe just son-father-grandfather? Dates as you have them? I will take a look.

Comment by James P. LaLone on October 15, 2013 at 2:08pm

Ann, in the eighth generation: BEIG (BEGG), COUPER, RAMSAY, CHURCHILL, & LILLIE, for ASTEN & CURTIS, I can't find any docs.  9th generation: as above plus ANDERSON, INNES, & TILDEN. 10th generation: as above plus KNIGHT TURNER, HAMBLIN.  11th generation: as above plus BACKUS, MENDALL, JENKINS, BRYANT, LOMBARD, believe HAWKES is wrong. As I go on more and more errors.

Comment by Ann Dibble Call on October 15, 2013 at 1:41pm

Thank you, James. What lines are you investigating? I am trying to do my best to find sources and authenticate many of my ancestry who are entered, but just in name only. Just an item of interest: If you have ancestry who came to the Colonies before 1750....this book is so interesting....available used on Amazon, of course. "Albion's Seed" by David Hackett Fischer from Brandeis University. I have to keep buying another one because I keep giving my copy away. Just very broadly, yet specifically too, looking at the personality and folkways of those who came from Britain during those years. Four separate groups. It helps me to just place my ancestry and to understand them and their comings and goings!

Comment by James P. LaLone on October 15, 2013 at 1:16pm
Am interested in anyone researching the families that start at the 8th generation, I see a number of errors, I do not see any contact info. If anyone is searching these families and would like to exchange data please let me know. http://freepages.family.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~database/Freeze%20Family%20Ahnentafel.html
