Bio and Links
Bio Photo Over the past several years, I've spent much of my free time researching multiple Crago, Craigo, Cragoe, Crego and Cregoe family trees, and you'll find a lot of information on FindaGrave about those family lines. I've also identified more than 600 of my direct paternal and maternal ancestors. I'm happy to share most of this information with other family researchers.

I've documented every known Crago and Craigo in America prior to 1900, and have lately begun to concentrate on the Crago's, Cragoe's and Cregoe's of Cornwall, England, Australia and New Zealand. I have extensive family files as a result of this search (i.e., more than 6000 different Crago's, Cragoe's, Crego's, Cregoe's and Craigo's).

As Project Administrator for DNA research on the various Crago/ Craigo/ Crego families tested at FTDNA, I can say with confidence that most of the family DNA patterns in America are now pretty well understood. Contact me for details of that DNA research, or check out the website below.

Finally, I've recently joined the Guild of One Name Studies (GOONS), based in England, in order to further the study of the Crago surname worldwide. Any Crago, Cragoe, Crego, Cregoe or Craigo in the World is encouraged to join these efforts.
NOTE!!  In July of 2011, about 5000 memorials created and/or managed by the late Dr. Adalbert Goertz were merged with the 1,000 or so I had created and/or managed prior to that. I very much regret that when FAG merged the two accounts, they removed the credit which should be properly given to Adalbert for all the work he did. I'll readily acknowledge that most of the work now credited to me was his doing. Visit his FAG memorial for more about Adalbert Goertz 69628876.

Craig question
Dr. Crago: I have just discovered the wonderful work you have been doing on the Crago/Craig name and highly oompliment you on it. I descend from Reason Bartley Craig b. 1803 and his 2nd wife, Dorcas Gard who lived in Preble Co OH before moving west to Wayne Co IN. Reason was a Cooper, as his brother, Daniel, was. I have collected a lot on this family, and have narrowed down his father as either a Hugh or a John Craig in early Preble Co.and certainly would like to find more on the line. You have him as descending from a Hugh Craig - is there proof? Reason's son, Isaac Cornelius Craig, b. 1848 is my great grandfather and his brother immediately older and b. Jan 1846/7 was Francis Marion Craig. I see another man by the same name, b. 1877,listed in Fairmount Cemetery, Camden, Preble Co, as the son of Allen Craig and Mary E. Potts, whom I do not know. I suspect there is a family connection here because of the similarity of the name.
Will you contact me?
