Research Interests - September 1998


In my genealogical researches I have cast many wide nets. When looking for an ancestor in some locations, one method I used with some success was to copy down all of the references on that surname that I could find within the time span, and look for family patterns later. By doing so I have a lot of information on some surnames in a few locations.

For example: - The town/borough of Kilsyth in Stirlingshire, Scotland has given me the most success but it isn't the only place I have searched for information.

I am also beginning to formulate a one name study on the KITTO family which originates in Cornwall, and I would most welcome any contacts in this name.

The following is a list of surnames that may have information in it for other members - it covers far wider than my own family tree. Youíll never know if you donít ask.

If you want further information about the families listed below, please contact me at
