About Our Family Research

I am researching our families of Read (de Rede), Cooley, Field, Derby (Darby, Daby), Hiiva (Hiivainanen) and many others. So far I have over three thousand members in my tree but am always adding more. Aside from Hiiva, most of our family came from Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. Hiiva came from Finland at the turn of the century. My ggrandfather and ggrandmother, Jacob Hiivainanen and Elizabeth Walkama (Valkama), they settled in Marlboro, NH and raised 9 children. I have Field back to 1030, Read back to 1139 and the rest back quite some way too.
If I can help anyone or if anyone has any information concerning these names from New Hampshire and Rehoboth, MA I would appreciate any connact.
