The Sandro Doughty Family Home PageUpdated September 5, 2000
|The family name DOUGHTY was given to me after my mother married Vincent B. Doughty when I was an infant.I was probably born with the name Sandro Pier Luigi KIPPELS (my mother's maiden name) in Nuremberg, Germany after WWII.My natural father was an Italian man named Ludovico CERELLI (spelling uncertain).My new father's mother's maiden name was BACKLUND from Sweden.On my mother's side my grandmother's maiden name was TAUCHECK or TAUCHEK from Germany.|
Because of gender identification problems I no longer use the name 'Sandro' but instead a contraction of my first and middle names. Therefore 'Skip' is the name I have been using since about 1984.
My wife was born with the name Katherine Elizabeth CARTER and her mother's maiden name was WIITA, a family originating from Finland.Her ancestry on her father's side includes, besides CARTER, the family names of RHODES and HUBBARD and go far back in U.S. history.
