More About Searching for Surnames by John Titford
 
 
 
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.
