It is an excellent way to find difficult to find surnames that are also common words such as Long or Fields or Day, and to find surnames that can also be first names such as John or Thomas or James.

Surname Finder Search Tips:

  • Search all the databases for each surname. Each has different information.

  • Search results will open in a different browser window. Please allow time for the search results to appear.

  • If the search utility do not work for you, make sure you have the latest version of your browser and have javascript enabled. As an alternative, go to the Genealogy Search directory.
