The Prime TravelGenee Surname Research

kitto-Papers Past > New Zealand Herald 13 December 1937The surname research I focus on is the tracing of my direct family line of ancestors. My grand parents names were DAWSON, KITTO, SHEPHERD & IRELAND (as in name not the country). These families resided in New Zealand and prior to this England and Scotland.

You will find a list of posts about these family names for my main branches at the following links:

  • DAWSON  – England, London, Sussex & Essex or New Zealand:
  • IRELAND  – Scotland or New Zealand
  • KITTO – England, Cornwall or Jersey, Channel Islands or New Zealand
  • SHEPHERD – England, London & Essex or New Zealand

My grandparents main branches include the following names that are also direct ancestors:

Aldridge, Bice, Bretel, Collis, Edmonds, Ellery, Gibson, Harper, Ireland, McDonald, Monger, Rice and Scott.

Then there is a list of names that are siblings of my direct ancestors or marriages to these siblings, in-laws and more. Family history research of these names will hopefully help my primary resource goals or lead to interesting family stores.

Austin, Babington, Boutcher, Byron-Barhydt, Campbell, Dimond / Diamond, Dixon, Daud, Ferguson, Frankland, Forbes, Grout, Jeffries, King, Mansfield, Myhill, Nixon, Reade, Richardson.

To find any research I have published on the TravelGenee blog using a surname try using the search option. Alternately more frequently discussed names will be in the tags lists.

Please note that some blog posts discuss possible people or connections yet to be fully proven in my family tree.
