More About Searching for Surnames by John Titford; Titford John
 
 
 
Overview
Are there Tadpoles or Hedgehogs in your family tree? Were your ancestors Silly, Daft, Vague or Horrible? Did they Fidget, Stammer or Tremble? Did they suffer from a Headache or a Gumboil? In the search for ancestors, names are the starting point. Without names, there would be no family history, and an understanding of names, and surnames in particular, will always be a crucial aid to knowledge and research. Searching for Surnames attempts to clear away some of the fog from the subject and provides a working guide to surname identification. It encourages readers to enjoy the diversity of surnames, be they common or rare, easy to interpret or shrouded in mystery.
