Description & Purpose

This is a One Name Study for Two Names to collect together in one place everything about these surnames and the variants of that name. The Durbins and Logsdons have intermarried so often, that they have almost become one.. Most resources for one will include the other.

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.
