This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about the Crane/Crain/Craine Family.. The hope is that those with an interest in the Crane/Crain/Craine genealogies and histories will join together to help make this a valuable resource for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

Task List

--To Isolate certain family pods to specific locations and provide resources to research the families and the areas they settled.

--To document movements of the Crane family from England to the U.S. and Canada and their movements West.

--To fully understand just how influential the Crane/Crain/Craine Family was to the history of the United States.

--To study the origin of the "Cranes" as peoples who came from the border of Scotland and England. Who are the Cranes, really? Once a tribe of people with different laws and customs from the either the Celts or incoming Germanic tribes. the Cranes were quite memorable. Their bones and muscles were long and lean unlike their thick boned and solidly muscled Celtic neighbors (a feature many Cranes still exhibit today). It was this crane-like look that gave them their name. Could the Cranes be the remnant of the Picts we thought were lost to history? Origins of the Cranes

My mother and I just joined DAR using Noah Crane as our ancestor. That's about all I know...I did get chuckle a few years ago when I found Ichabod Bennett Crane as an ancestor. Thanks for your work!

Love your page! There is something a little Pictish about us, yes.

I'm descended from Joanna Crane & William Valentine. Their granddaughter Melissa Valentine, cousin and wife of Russell Bigelow Mulford, is my great-great-grandmother. Haven't developed that part of my tree here, yet, and when I do, this will be a great resource. Thanks!

Saundra, I have some Crane ancestors. I don't completely understand how one name studies work, but my most recent Crane ancestor is Jane Crane (Crane-2778), who was born in Cranetown (now known as Montclair) New Jersey on February 5, 1785.

If there is something I can do to further your Crane/Crain/Craine research, I'd like to help.
