There are three American families -- all with early roots in the USA -- in which I have an ongoing interest. They are:
o Vanderpool/Van der Poel (Dutch), especially the females and the descendants of the lines that went first to North Carolina in the 1750s.
o Bankston/Bankson (Swedish), especially descendants of Lawrence Bankston who went from Pennsylvania to North Carolina in the 1740s. Of special interest is his youngest son, Jacob, and his descendants.
o Autry/Awtrey (French), particularly the untangling of the several Absaloms and the lines in Colonial North Carolina.
