Surnames List

Below are the surnames that are in my family tree up to 4th great-grandmothers, organized by surname and generation. I started with my mother's maiden name, then my grandmother's maiden names, then great-grandmothers', etc. I also included where the family members in my tree bearing the surname lived, in chronological order (hence the ">" symbol). If a name was changed, I use that same symbol to indicate this. If a name has more than one acceptable spelling, I use a slash ("/").
