I started family history in the 1990s after a family funeral, mainly with youngest brother, Richard. Recently took it up again, and digitizing all those paper notes and primary source references into a Gedcom 5.5.1 file.
We researched our paternal line very solidly back to William Little, Dormansteads, Stapleton, Cumberland, UK, 1676 to 1763-03-27. We hit a bit of a brick wall, so we hope that the Little One Name Study, its Cumberland and Stapleton Parish sub-projects, and the Little Y-DNA project will help link further back perhaps to pre-1600. As Stapleton is only a few miles from Scotland, the Dumfriesshire, Scotland, Little sub-project may be helpful too.
Other names of interest in that time and place are Kennedy, Robson, Phillips and McQuin.
Our maternal line goes back, not quite so far, to farming stock in County Durham, NE England, UK. Family names of interest are Revell, Sayer, Bainbridge and Coatsworth.
Living relatives are scattered around the world (Australia, Canada, India, Middle East, Spain, Thailand and USA).
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Family Tree DNA.
