Ancestors of John Bertie Long (1884-1961)


 Ancestry by Surname for John Bertie Long

by Elmer Lamar Ross 

Here I am listing the various family names from which we came over several generations.   I have information in some lines that go back 15 to 20 generations.  Many of these will be added later.   

My brothers and sister will have the same ancestry as mine.  Cousins on my father's side will have the same ancestral line as my father.  Cousins on my mother's side will have the same ancestral line as my mother.  Other relatives can see how they fit in by finding a common ancestor on this site.  Every person prior to that person will be part of their ancestry.   

I am using the format called Ahnentafel (abbreviated here as Ahn) which numbers the ancestors from a common person.  In this case, it will be me, Elmer Lamar Ross, the author of this site.  The first person will be number 1 (that's me). 

My parents will be Elmer Melvin ROSS (Ahn #2) and Mary Ruth LONG (Ahn # 3).  They are generation number two to me. Elmer's parents will be  James McClellan Ross (Ahn # 4) and Esther Lou Owens (Ahn # 5).  They are generation number three to me.  Their ancestors are treated on separate web pages.

On this site I am including  the ancestors of Mary Ruth Long ( my mother).  Her parents are also generation number three to me.  They are John Bertie LONG (Ahn # 6) and Nannie Grace LEWIS (Ahn # 7). 

All of my ancestors (ROSS, OWENS, LONG, AND LEWIS-and their ancestral lines) are part of my http://www.rossancestors.com site.

RossAncestors.Com is a Ross Family blog to which posting and pages are added on a regular basis.   The site includes historical documents like wills and newspaper excepts;  stories of particular Ross and Long ancestors; social and historical accounts; and general genealogical data on my ancestors.

On this site I will have the ancestors of John Bertie Long listed on one web page, and the ancestors of Nannie Grace Lewis listed on another.

The Ahnatafel number of each new surname that enters the ancestral lineage will be placed beside that surnameMy specific Ahnentafel list of Ancestors can be found by clicking on the this link. Each individual surname will have a link to a specific page for that surname.  As soon  as a page ink is added to a specific surname, a star (*) will be placed before the name in the list below.  Additional ancestral surnames will be added as they are discovered through research.
