About Our Family Research

I have been doing research on our families for the last year and would like any input anyone might have on our different line's. The Bertagnolli hertiage starts in Tyrol, Austria. I have the surnames of Bertagnolli, Facinelli, Segna, and Fellin that date back to 1710 in Trentino. Recently I have taken the Facinelli line back to abt. 1570 starting with Andrea Facinelli. I then have the Bassett and Shambo lines from Quebec who came to the Chicago area in the early 1800's. They had a saloon called Shambo's Thirst Parlor in the early 1900's in Chicago, Il. and then my ggrandfather, Joseph, moved to Baldwin Co., Alabama. Some Shambo's stayed in Illinois and some moved to Florida. Another line is the Elisha Buzbee line from South Carolina in the 1700's. They had a plantation on the Santee River in 1751. They moved to Crawford Co., Ga., then to Coffee Co., Al. in the 1850's. After the Civil War they settled in Mississippi, South Alabama and Florida where many are still today. I also have the Stanton's, Strock's, Bohannon's and Newberry's from Monroeville, Al. in the early 1800's. I believe they came from N.C., S.C., and Virginia. Rachel Stanton is believed to have come from Ireland and was born in 1771. Four generations of the Stanton's (Staumton) are listed on the 1850 Conecuh Co., Al. census all living together. My Padgett line consist of Padgett's and Russell's in Barbour Co., Al., Bowman's and Griffin's in Georgia and Alabama, and Phillips in Alabama. Thanks for any help you might can give and glad you stopped by.
