Surname Saturday – A Research Tip

Have you ever searched the GeneaBloggers website for the surnames you are researching? I never had until this morning. On a whim, I put SPURLOCK in the search box and got 10 pages of results! Most of the results were related to my own blog posts, but I did get results from several blogs about which I was previously unaware. One of the links led me to the obituary for a second cousin who died in 1966 – cool! I’m going back now to search for other surnames.

To search, type your surname in the box below the phrase SEARCH YOUR SURNAMES IN OVER 2,000 GENEALOGY BLOGS found on the right sidebar. Try it – maybe you'll find something cool, too!

  1. Denise today I was in Irving, TX and I saw a building that said "Jack Spurlock Realty" What a coincidence.

  2. Cheryl, There were some distant cousins who ended up in the Dallas area. I'll have to check it out. "Jack" seems to have been a very popular Spurlock name/nickname!
