Campbell One Name Study

This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about the Campbells. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect. Please contact the project leader, add categories to your profiles, add your questions to the bulletin board, add details of your name research, etc.

Please help add Campbells and their stories so we can all know our roots.

This is for all who have had Campbell in their name. (birth, marriage, etc)

The mission of the project is to add and improve profiles of all Campbells. Project members take primary responsibility for relevant profiles or family groups and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, removing incorrect information and offering research assistance as needed.

Instructions for working on this project are at the bottom of this page.

Adding Project Template

If you would like, you may add a project template to profiles included in this study if the profile is of a significant member of the Campbell family or if the profile is the primary focus of this study.

This profile is part of the Campbell Name Study.

Campbell DNA

Since DNA can be traced along a patrilineal (father to father to father) line it can be interesting for someone studying the genealogy of a surname, theoretically at least. The Y chromosome conveniently follows our Western Europe convention on last names.


External Campbell DNA Projects

Although there are now many companies offering DNA testing for genealogical purposes, Family Tree DNA is the largest. They have groups organized around surnames including this one:

Wikitree Campbell DNA Takers

Here is the complete Index.

When you add yourself or a Campbell relative to WikiTree your addition(s) will automatically be included on the index the following day.

Instructions for working on this Project

Here are two help pages to help you get started... How to use Wikitree and Adding to WikiTree. Help menus are located at the top right of every page.

First

Add your family, parents, grandparents on back until you come to a point where you connect with your most distant Ancestor.

Second

Open the Campbell Name Study Project page and

Add early Campbell's

Add early Campbell's to the appropriate section - Ireland, Scotland, Ontario, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, etc. (add new sections as needed) - this would be generally from Documented Campbell's to 1850 (1865 if you spot someone interesting). You will need to do this in edit mode and follow along with what has already been started with Virginia. WikiMark-Up has a bit of a learning curve, so following the existing work will hopefully help. If you don't feel comfortable adding early Dunnahoos into the table format, add their information in the lists below the tables and we (those who are comfortable working in the tables) will work to add them to the sortable table.

Search WikiTree

Search WikiTree to see if any of the Campbell's listed in the tables already have a profile and move the source information to the existing profile then add the WikiTree link to the name in the table. WikiMark-up for an internal link is:

[[Gaulden-7|Mags Gaulden]] which would give my name in a like this in the table: Mags Gaulden - My WikiTreeID is Gaulden-7.

This is example from the Dunnahoo Name Study: James Dunnahoo, the first entry for Virginia, from the table in edit mode so you can see what it looks like:

|-<br> |'''James'''|| '''Dunnahoo''' || || || '''1776''' || '''[[Dunnahoo-10|James Dunnahoo]]''

So you see that James Dunnahoo's WikiTree ID is used just like mine in the example above.

Add profiles to the Tree

Any profiles that don't match any other profile existing WikiTree profile need to have profile reated for them. If they have a link in the table they already have a profile. Once added, their WikiTreeID needs to be added to this page - or to the table and any source information or notes from this page moved to the profile.

Third

Write - If you feel more comfortable researching and/or writing information, something like an overview of Dunnahoo's in Virginia, please feel free to work in that area. Again, follow the work I have already done as far as any Wiki formatting.

AND fourth ask questions!

Let me know if the table for PA is in the wrong place. I was thinking that is how you wanted it but wanted to be sure. Once confirmed I can add more to the list. I plan to put up the Military war veterans as they are the most important members.

Cheers!!

Hi from hot Texas!! My Campbell family was in Missouri in the mid 1800s and was the name of my paternal grandfather's mother. Her family was in Kentucky, I believe, in the early 1800s. The name of my great great grandfather was Jacob A Campbell - born circa 1807 in Kentucky. Blessed to be part of this great family!! An update: I discovered that Jacob A Campbell was probably born In South Carolina, then migrated to Kentucky and Missouri with his parents.

Happy Thanksgiving. I have come to a brick wall with the father of William Shield Campbell born 1811. A lot of people think he is Daniel Campbell(common name). I would like to compare DNA with known relatives of Robert Campbell born 1709. Thanks

Recently was gifted with family genealogy and discovered I am a Campbell. I am busting on my grandmother's, Malvery Jane Campbell (Jackson County, Kentucky), Grandfather William Campbell (north Carolina?) who emigrated from Scotland. I would love to be involved in discovering our common roots.
