Guild of One-Name Studies
One-name studies, Genealogy
Hi, this is all new to me so I'll be tweaking a lot till I get the hang of it. However, I am not new to genealogy and ancestry. Here is my bio from Ancestry.com:
I am a writer, historian, researcher genealogist, working on several trees for my Wardlaw families for over 50 years. The tree on the America Wardlaws coming down from the immigrant from Scotland, Robert Wardlaw, is 'America Wardlaws'. I have also written 4 books on the Wardlaws, in America and also their history back into Scotland. See more on them at: www.ladath.com and on the Clan Wardlaw website at: www.clanwardlaw.com. The tree on the early beginnings of the Wardlaws in Scotland is 'Scotland Wardlaws'. These are numbered from old Temple Records that were compiled in the early 1900's and start with the first one we have a birthdate for, Henry #1 Wardlaw, b. 1293. This Scotland branch does NOT connect with the immigrant Robert (A1) Wardlaw THAT WE KNOW OF. He most assuredly connects to the main branches of the Wardlaws in Scotland, but WE HAVE NO POSITIVE DOCUMENTATION. My books on the Scotland Wardlaws are 'Ancestral Earth', 'Ancestral Earth II' and 'Ancestral Earth III'. I welcome any and all input for these trees and would love to have anything you would like to contribute such as your line back from you, photos, especially of ancestors, gravestones, histories, etc.
Please join us in our DNA Wardlaw Project to connect Wardlaws all over the world! We have many Wardlaws in the group now. See the 'Wardlaw Project' at www.familytreedna.com The more Wardlaws we have the more connections we can make, and the more details we can find! We especially need Scotland Wardlaws to join in to connect our ancestry back in Scotland! Thanks!
Recently I have started a tree for the descendants of the Wardlaw slaves back in South Carolina, Virginia and other Southern states. It is 'Black Wardlaws'. I also have a Wardlaw website, www.clanwardlaw.com in which there is an extensive section on 'Black Wardlaws'. I have a co-editor who works with me on researching that history.
more to come. . .
