Summary
Find out how the names were formed, and get unique insights about the families who carried the names hundreds of years ago. A collection like no other. You'll find countless threads connecting people and places, gain new perspectives on topics covered in history books, and pick up some interesting trivia. Most important of all, it might be able to illuminate your own family heritage, or provide starting points for your own genealogical journey. It all starts with our not-so-simple heritage of last names -- things that really only came into existence a couple dozen generations ago. By understanding the stories behind these names, we can learn not just about our own lineage, but get a whole new perspective on many of the real flesh-and-blood people who walked this early long before us, and who have made it possible for us to stand here today
