They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. --Laurence Binyon,"Ode of Remembrance"


I have gathered a posie of other men's flowers, and nothing but the string that binds them is mine own. --Michel Eyquem de Montaigne


Documenting your family history is a lifelong pursuit, a task of pleasure and research that is never completely finished.


Not to know one's ancestors, is to be a tree without roots, a stream without a source. --Kung-fut-se


The wind whispers through the trees, recalling words and dreams and memories of those who left us long ago. --Unknown


St. Basil of Caesarea, born about 330 A.D., said, "A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love."

Variant Surname Spellings
Some Examples

Tobias A. Wright, in writing of the Dutch Records of the early Staten Island Churches, states that "In many cases the names of the descendants of these early settlers are not only spelled differently and the pronunciations so changed as to almost defy recognition by those unlearned in the peculiar characteristics of Dutch nomenclature."

The underlined spelling is the variant used in the editorial content, unless referring to a specific person. The surnames on this list are not necessarily related to the Roll family.
