I started the one-name study in the late 1990s for one main reason, the name seems to be dying out in the line I married into, due to very few males to take the name on. I have been a member of the Guild since 2001, this one-name study consists of three names Linge, Lynge and Lingo, 90% of the information I have so far is for the Linge name. I have made contact with both living Linge's and people researching the Linge variants from around the world. But I am always looking for new contacts to share or receive any information from, to add the database I have.
I do not know the true origin of the Linge name at the moment, but I have found these references to the Linge name.
So any one of these could be the origin of the name, which makes the research more interesting.
I have collected a lot of data, which includes the UK births, marriages and Deaths from 1837 to 2000, and a lot of this was collected and supplied by Ken and Pam Linge from Northumberland, with great thanks. I also have listing of other indexes like the IGI and various Vital Records Index entries.
I have added a growing number of parish registers entries but this takes time and the record offices are not close to me.
Currently i have no plans to do any DNA research.
