Having trouble with a surname? There are probably names that are even more difficult to research...

In the 12 March 2008 issue of the RootsWeb Review, Audrey Burba told about her problem doing family research because her mother's maiden name was Driver. I just want Audrey to know she is not alone. I am trying to find out where my great-great-grandfather's middle name Washman came from. Try putting that into a search engine. I am learning a lot about washing, and not much about families with the surname Washman.
