Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
This week end, while going through some things, I found my copy of the Upper Cumberland Reasearcher. Maybe this will help you figure out who goes with who in your BRINDLEY records. I'll try to type it as accurately as possible; "The South is mainly populated by people with Anglo-Saxon ancestry. An unwritten but mutually understood formula by the so-called Scotch-Irish was to name the first son after the father's father, the second son after the mother's father, the third son for the father, and the fourth son for the father's oldest brother. For the daughters, the process was reversed, with the first daughter named for the mother's mother, the second named for the father's mother, the third for the mother, and the fourth for the mother's oldest sister. In addition, children were frequently named for the attending doctor or midwife, or for some famous person or historical event."
