In my 15 to 20 years of working with my family history, I've run across countless individuals researching their Carroll family lines. The majority of them have had the same family rumor that I encountered with ours when I started. That we had a connection to Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the Signer of the Declaration of Independence.
So started with what I knew about my family and worked backwards. At the same time I started researching Charles Carroll of Carrollton and his family line with the hope of meeting up somewhere in the middle.
A few years later, I have a family file with 961 individuals for the good Charles with photos and notes. Some of which you can review on my homepage at the address below.
