I'm trying to find some information on my family's information. My father's family came over to US in early 1800's to Minnesota and Missouri. There were two brothers who supposedly came from England but other family info points to Scotland as the orign of family name.
My sister did some research in the early 70's that has since been misplaced. Not sure if it will ever surface.
I've signed up at familytreedna.com (for a dna test that can show common genes and therefore help trace family origins - much more involved but you can go there to read more) and started a Dow Family Project. If you want more information or would like to participate, email me.
I'm also going to London in August for a vacation and thought I would do a little research. I am an absolute rookie at this and would appreciate any suggestions.
If there are any of you Dows out there from Missouri or Minnisota send me a note.
