I have been doing Geneology for at least 40 yrs. Surnames are Paternal; Burnham, Brown, Marden, Worth, Gorden, Critchet,Smith.
Maternal; Cromb, Davis, Russell, Bixby, Sheffield, Pendleton, Barber.
Most of the Paternal line is from New Hampshire & England. The Maternal line is Massachusetts, Rhode Island, & New York.
I started searching the family roots when I learned my mothers mother disappeared when my mom was only 2yrs. old. I was hoping I could find information for my mother as she always wondered what happened to her. The family says she ran away one night while everyone was sleeping. They thought she jumped on a train that went by their house.
I love Geneology, I have found a lot of interesting History.
