Oliver Family History

In fact, he stole the […]

Buchanan Family History

Buchanan Surname The Buchanan Family is what sparked my interest in researching our family history.  When I was a little girl, I heard that former President James Buchanan was my 5 x’s Great Uncle.  So, naturally, I set out to see if that was true…and how he was related exactly…more on that later.  And now here we are today. I did a quick search on Ancestry.com to find the origin of the surname Buchanan.  Buchanan originated in Scotland.  Interestingly, my great […]

Applegate Family History

Applegate Surname With John Edward Beyl marrying Edna Mae Applegate, this gives me a whole new line of ancestors to research.  My initial search on the Applegate surname looks promising. I did a quick search on Ancestry.com to find the origin of the surname Applegate.  It appears to be a variant of Applegarth which seems to come from the northern Middle English word gate or road. Fortunately, Ancestry seems to have hundreds of thousands of records for the Applegate surname […]

Beyl Family History

Beyl Surname I haven’t found much about the Beyl surname online yet.  I am still very early into my research on this line.  Quick searches on the history of the name Beyl are yielding very few results, if any.  This makes it difficult to determine where the name came from. I’ve only found one website that provides any kind of description for the name, but it isn’t a reliable site for genealogical purposes.  It is more of a touristy site […]
