Researching the Eliesons (in Sweden) and the Shurtliffs (in England) has been quite a challenge. My ancestors in Sweden changed their surname with each generation. Generally, however, Swedish families seldom moved from the hill or valley where they were born. So once the village is found so are the relatives, or so I've been told.
The Shurtliffs in England spelled the surname according to their fancy (Chyrclyff, Shircliff, Schirclyff, Shierclifffe, Shurtleff). It was spelled in more than 50 different ways as the vowels were very promiscuously used according to individual caprice or fashion. My Shurtleff (oops, Shurtliff) immigrant ancestor, a certain William Shettle, was an 11-year old apprentice in Plymouth, Mass., on May 16, 1634. It is in Plymouth, then, that I begin my journey . . .

We want to find the Domans, Howes, Rupps, Linebaughs, Martinsens, Davises, Currys, and a host of others. Looking for the English Domans or the Welsh Davises is everything that we'd expected it would be - An exponential challenge to the nth degree!

Welcome to my dynamic family - they shaped my world!
