My Personal Family Research

I had been doing general research up until about 2009 when I came across a brick wall on my husband’s side and thought the best way to get around this was to collect all the examples of the name that I could. This led me to Registering a One-Name study.

By the end of 2016 I had also been thinking about a similar problem I had in my own tree and with the popularity of DNA tests decided to take one and see if I could narrow down my elusive Great Grandfather. I also got my husband to take a test to see if that would help in finding his Great Grandmother and Great Grandfather, that’s when it got interesting……………

He found a match, then another and another and another etc etc.

The Croft One-Name Study

This project then evolved from my lonely one woman search into one that stretched across the world and resulted in a group of relative strangers sitting in Ask! Italian in Faversham Kent for 5 hours! Talking DNA and Family History.

I realised during one such lunch towards the end of November that what we were doing was turning into a One-Name study. It was then registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies.

This study is the result of this group of people working together to try and find the connection between these new-found cousins and is very much a work in progress.

The Whittall One-Name Study

This is my study on my maiden name and started as I obvioulsy have a lot of them in my tree and I became fascinated by the extended family and beyond. This was registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies in 2009.
