Cynthia Denise Griffin has English ancestors.


I compiled my first family tree as a 5th grade elementary school project. I am fortunate that both sides of my family had historians interested in our family tree and had researched our ancestors before me. This has allowed me to verify family lines and increase our family tree branches.

I am interested in early US History and settlers. My direct family lines have been the US for 7 to 11 generations and settled in the Colonies of CT, MD, NC, NJ, NY, PA and VA. All lines of my tree had immigrated into the Colonies in the 1600 and 1700s.

I have many direct great-grandfathers, uncles and cousins who fought in the US Civil War, Confederacy, with many uncles and cousins as well, serving in NC and VA. Some KIA and others who were POWs who died at Point Lookout in the Union POW Camp and buried in a mass grave on the location.

Another interest is European history. Tracing my lines from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, into France, Spain, Germania, Scandanavia, Russia. Royal lineages and intermarriages of these families have spread my tree into many countries during the medieval period and prior.

I have a couple of great grandfathers who were sent to the US Colonies as indentured servants during a time when England was trying to populate the colonies.

Here are the twisted roots of my tree...

Hi Cynthia,

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Southern Colonies Project. As we haven't heard from you, we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to their ancestors. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Hi Cynthia Denise,

I sent you a message a week ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but have not yet heard back from you. If you would like to continue in the project, please can you PM me your team(s) selections and your e-mail address for the Google group.

If I don’t hear back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project at this time.

Many thanks,

Susie :-)

Hi Cynthia Denise,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries
