I believe you'll find you have better luck finding information if you will list some given names and dates to go with your surnames. All genealogical material only covers certain timeframes, and if we don't have any idea of when these people lived then we have no idea of where to look for them ......why look in a book of records for the 1700s if they lived in 1910, for instance....there are 3 elements necessary for any query; geographic location, FULL names and some sort of date, even if approximate.
