About Allen's Ancestry
When I was young, like many children, I really didn't like my given names. "Allen" didn't really seem cool to me, so I started introducing 
myself as "Al."  My middle name, "Wright,"  seemed odd when most of the boys I knew had common middle names like "John," Robert," 
or "Thomas." Later, I learned that it was common for many of the families originally from England and Scotland, to give their children 
middle names representing the family names of their grandparents or great-grandparents.

About fifteen years ago when I became interested in researching my family tree, I was delighted to find out that my great-grandmother's 
maiden name was "Wright." It all started making more sense to me. Also, my first name, "Allen" was the surname of another great-
grandparent. So my three names each represent my ancestors.

Family tree research becomes more and more difficult the further one goes back in history. Eventually, the researcher reaches a "brick 
wall." With more and more information becoming available every day through the internet, the data can become overwhelming. I'm sure 
there are errors and omissions here. If you should spot any, I would love to know about them. I would appreciate it if you pointed them 
out to me.

I hope my family members can find some interest in the trees on this site. Non-family visitors are also welcome to contact me to share 
notes about our research.

Welcome to Allen's Ancestry. I hope you stay a while and look around.
