I'm also new. I don't know what areas my names are with my notes, but some of my names are: England: Horton, Mapes, Benjamin, Eddy, Wines, Mobley/Mobberley, Waters, Luce/Luse, Harrison of Acaster/Caton, Marshall, Pearsall (could be Scot), Dickson, Dixon. Scotland: Johnstone of that ilk, Cathcart, Belchier/Belcher, McMillan, Buchanan (McCausland, King O'Kyan), Maxwell. Irish: Kenan, Causey (said to be Co. Galway). Wales: Powell (2 different lines I think - 1 in NC & 1 in VA). There is also McIntosh, McGillivray that are a part of my Native Am. heritage with Choctaw, Creek, possibly Cherokee & Chickasaw. That is just a few of my names.
Leeann, one of yours jumped out at me - Nicklin. I wonder if any connection to John Bailey Calvert Nicklin, who wrote a book on the Calverts.
I've been researching for over 25 yrs., much of that time without a computer up until 10 yrs. ago. The main problem is not having access to records. I am glad that some research sites have come together to protect & keep free some of the records out there. But I will use ancestry.com's free for so many days when necessary, if I can't locate the info elsewhere. I've found a wealth of birth, death, marriage records, county & some family histories at googlebooks.com. I especially like all the old parish records.
I'm in the States, & feel I haven't even begun to really scratch the surface of wanting to know everything abt my ancestors.
Thanks for an awesome place to do research & so many helpful people. I definitely plan to try to bring others here. I'll also try to help any I can. My research areas are all on east coast - NY, MD, VA, PA, SC, NC, GA, TN, AL, MS, the early days of French LA, possibly AR.
