We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to WorldFamilies.net at carrie@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 of project
•       Kit Number
•       Name of person posting pedigree
•       Email address to be posted with pedigree
•       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)

If you are NOT A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, you are welcome to post your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum below.  We hope an interested researcher will see it and contact you to share information.

Hi, Cherry.  It looks as if you share common ancestors with Jennifer Huckaba.  You should contact her if you are not already in touch.

Looking for any information on Elijah Biggs and earlier.  His full name is Elijah Henry Biggs, Sr.  He was born around 1796 in Maryland (I believe Frederick County).  Trying to find any other family members in the tree.  Would like to go farther back if possible.  He had at least two children (Andrew Jackson Biggs and Elijah Henry Biggs, Jr.).  Andrew Jackson Biggs had at least one son (Lewis Augusta Biggs).  Lewis is my great grandfather.

Also, my father who is past away stated that somehow we are related to Francis Scott Key.  However, I can't find anything to suggest that.  Not sure if information got twisted a bit through the years.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,


Paul

Would you care to post your direct line pedigree from earliest ancestor down to 1906?  Have you cosidered joining the Biggs Surname DNA project?

My mother's maden name is Biggs. Here's my pedigree chart:

http://www.ysearch.org/gedcom_show.asp?uid=&viewuid=a8jph&lastname=Biggs

Sorry, it only goes back to 1778 on the Biggs line.

I'm hoping one of my 'Biggs' relatives will request a DNA kit from www.smgf.org. It's completely free, so I don't see why they wouldn't.

Even though I'm not a Biggs by my paternal line, you may still post my pedigree chart to your project page. I will let you know the DNA results if I can get an Uncle to be tested.
