Subject: Re:Lathan's in north east England
I've been tracing my north east ancestry for about 12 years now (since i was
about 14) and one of the names i'm tracing is Lathan. My 2x great
grandmother was a MARY ELIZABETH LATHAN who was born in 1852 at Southwick,
Sunderland, England. The family originated from Northumberland, mainly from
Hexham. The majority of the Sunderland Lathan's stayed in Southwick which
has made tracing them reasonably easy. I'm currently doing a Lathan north
east one name study where i aim to connect all Lathan's in the north east.
I've written to all the Lathan's in the area and the tree is growing all the
time. If you'd like me to send you a copy just ask. If you've come across
any other Lathan researchers in this area please could you let me know.
