Main Feature

Welcome to the R G Strong Family Genealogy website.

I have been researching and collecting information on my family tree for over 25 years and it has been growing steadily for the last 15 years after I first went on line with my first tree of about 5000 names. Since then my database has grown to well over 20,000 individuals.
I am looking for the ancestors of my G-G-Grandparents William Adelbert STRONG and Mary Polly WENRICH who were born in Mifflin Co., PA in 1825-1829 and any of their descendants. Recent DNA Studies have shown that my STRONG ancestors original Surname may have been STRANG, and may have originated in Scotland and that we are most likely descended from James "Schim" Strong of the York, PA Strongs. Read the theory about this connection, and see the results of this DNA study. In the study my kit number is 16001 and is listed under the group "Strange of Balkaskie of Scotland". So if you know of any STRANG decendants from PA or CT, then we may be connected.

On my maternal side I am looking for ancestors and descendants of Walter HALLADAY b. 1640 who settled in Simsbury,CT.
I am looking for the following surnames and hope you can help or I can help you.
STRONG/STRANG, HALLADAY (all forms of the spelling), SKELTON, PRATT, CONINE, KEMPLE, & CULP. The main migration routes were from PA=>OH=>MI and VT=>CT=>NY=>CANADA=>MI
