  1. Great idea!…My blog isn’t specifically about genealogy, but I might have to copy your idea and publish a list of my surnames. You never know…it would be cool to connect with distant cousins. Thank you! (I have Doty’s in Central New York in early 1800’s – ….any chance…?).

    • Thx for visiting, Lenore. My Doty’s came through Dutchess County in Eastern New York … but you never know how the relatives spread West. I’ll contact you via your email, and we’ll compare notes. Would love to discover you’re a distant cousin!
