If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to WorldFamilies.net at mari@worldfamilies.net.  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page by Worldfamilies.net or sent to the Project’s Administrator.

Please include the following:  (If you have more information you would like to share, you may also post a more extended version of your family pedigree on the project website’s Pedigree Forum below)

•       Name, birthdate, birthplace, spouse of Earliest Known Ancestor
•       List each succeeding generation, using only those four items of information (or substitute another item of information if missing an item)

I'm not sure if this is the place to post this, but since it is relevant, this the info I have on Christopher migration to America:

The Christopher Family Migration to America

1662: From England to the Eastern Shore
After receiving the Charter of Maryland from King Charles I in 1634,
Lord
Baltimore needed to populate his new province. If he was to profit from the
fees and the trade that he hoped would develop with England and the other
New
World provinces, he needed to attract settlers. He did so by establishing a
system of incentives known as "headrights." To each settler who agreed to
emigrate to Maryland and establish a manor, Lord Baltimore granted a parcel
of up to 2000 acres which depended in size on the number of people the
settler brought with him.
Those who could not afford the cost of a voyage signed on with a master,
thereby enlarging the masters estate. In a typical indenture, the master
would promise to furnish transportation, "Meat, Drinke, Apparell and
Lodging,
with other necessaries" during the servants term and then, on its completion
four to five years later, to supply him with clothes, a years provision of
corn, and the right to fifty acres of land.
So it was that a Calvert County (MD) planter named Francis Billingsley
arranged for the transport of several servants from London after his own
immigration in 1652. One of those servants was a young man named John
Christopher, who arrived at Billingsley's Upper Cliffs plantation in 1662.
Within five years he had a wife, Ann, and a namesake, a son John born on
January 15, 1669 in Calvert County. Three more children followed Jane in
1672; Anne, born in Wicomico Hundred (part of Somerset County) in 1677; and
Ephraim, born in 1683.
John's life in Maryland began at a time when tobacco was the primary
revenue source of the "planters " or plantation owners to whom servants like
John were indentured. Black slavery did not catch on in Maryland until the
early 1700s, and the white indentured servitude was therefore essential to
the plantation economy. Life for the indentured servant was brutal. Each
was
expected in a year to till 6000 hillocks of tobacco and 5 acres of corn.
Mistreatment of servants by their masters was common. John and Ann
doubtless
spent their first years together on the Upper Clifts plantation, engaged in
the drudgery of sotweed manufacture.

Transported servants were entitled , after their five years of service,
to live as freemen and to take possession of 50-acre parcels. The dreams
that these fortune-seekers had of transforming these parcels into
plantations
were rarely realized. More often, the wealth and power of the large
landowners gave them an advantage against which the newly freed servants
could not compete, and they were ultimately forced to sell their parcels and
sign on as laborers.

John Christopher was apparently an exception. He succeeded. On June 8,
1680, he proved his right to fifty acres of land, and he managed to keep it.
While he was probably never wealthy, he was sufficiently provident to have
some of the larger landowners endebted to him by the latter part of 1680,
and
three years later, he was granted patents to two parcels in Somerset County.
"Battlefield," consisting of 50 acres, and "Marsham" 100 acres, were both
located in Wicomico Hundred, near Princess Anne. In 1689, John Christopher was
one of 258 Somerset County landowners who signed the Somerset Address of
Loyalty to King William III. John evidently died sometime before 1720.
The Christopher lines of Somerset County have not all been sorted, but
it
is apparent that the family gravitated toward the south end of the County
(which then bordered on the Nanticoke River and Dorchester County) and
became
affiliated with Stepney Parish. Some eventually moved across the Nanticoke
into Dorchester County.
Levin (born circa 1797) and William Christopher (1794-1857) were
probably
brothers, but in any event were the progenitors of the Christopher families
which now populate Dorchester and Caroline Counties on the Eastern Shore of
Maryland. While Levin's and William's connection to the immigrant John has
eluded proof, it seems virtually certain that John was indeed their ancestor.

Personal Pedigree ? Anthony Christopher
John Christopher b 1789 Abbeyside, County Waterford, Ireland - m Mary McGrath b 1791 Dungarvan, Ireland.
John Kennedy Christopher b 1814 Ringsillogue, barony: Decies without Drum, Townland: Dungarvan, County: Waterford, Ireland. -
m Ellen Morrissey b 1831 of Abbeyside, County Waterford, Ireland.
James Morrissey Christopher b1869 The Square, Dungarvan, County Waterford, Ireland. ? m Mary Swift of Blackburn, Lancashire, England.
Gerald Fitzgerald Christopher b 1894 Blackburn, Lancashire, England. ? m Jessica Ferguson of Fife Scotland.
James Morrissey Christopher b:1920 Wigan, Lancashire, England.

Short history of the Christopher name in Ireland.
In Ireland the name Christopher has always been located in the land settled by the Diesi in Munster, the area is known today as County Waterford and it is from amidst this old Celtic tribe in the heart of the Diesi tribal lands the Christ-bearers - Christopher?s of Ireland originate. Originally referred to as Diesi Muman, the area between the River Blackwater and the River Suir in County Waterford Ireland is still today called "The Decies". The area known as Na Diesi (in English the Decies) has two definitive areas - Diesi within Drum and Diesi without Drum. The ancient Celtic tribe known as Diesi were dispossessed of their lands in Tara County Meath in the 3rd century (the hills of Tara north of Dublin) and settled the lands of County Waterford around the town of Dungarvan and westward to the Cork borders. The use of Christopher as a surname in recorded history in Ireland proceeds its use in England and Wales by over 125 years.
Christopher - Cri'ost'oir has been continuously used in Co. Waterford since the thirteenth century; it is recorded in the 1659 census as one of the principal Irish names in the Co. Waterford barony of Decies.
Bishop Griffin Christopher was the Bishop of Lismore in 1225.
In 2006 (as in the 11 century) the surname Christopher is still clustered in that area of County Waterford known as The Decies.
