I have found it interesting in my search of family trees that there can be a lot of Families ties that are interesting just by the fact of how in one area there will be a connection and then the connection folds back on itself.
I recently received an email from Cynthia which states:
I’d like to look at your work for help with my search. There is a great deal of confusion re whether the Ky Comptons descend from Willeum of Gravesend.
As an aside, you might find humerous that I descend from Nicholas Stillwell on my Paternal side, Willeum on maternal. I guess the two families now have been fighting since the 1600′s.
I thought it just started when my parents divorced in 1960′s! Thx, Cindy
And then in my own family there is the Hamilton connections where my ex-husband and myself were both connected to Hamilton Families that came from the same area in our past lines. You can find that Hamilton connection information here
Of course there is always the interesting mix in the marriages of the Royal families, which makes genealogy searches very interesting and people that have searched Royal Families knows the families span across many counties which makes the search even more interesting.
