Bio

I have been doing genealogy on the various branches ofmy family since 2000. I'm currently working on my paternal Cursted/Curstead/Custead, Custard, Custeed line. The spelling of my paternal family name I found in Norfolk, England records are Kyrsted(oldest), Kirsted, Kirstead, Cursted, Curstead, Carstead, Cursteed, Kirstick, Curstick, Curticke, Custick, and Custead. The name original meant place of cherry trees. It is Anglo-Saxon or Danish. The founder of my paternal line in USA and Canada, Daniel Curstead aka Daniel Custed aka Daniel Custard used Custed and Custard on official documents such as the U.S. Direct Tax and U.S. Census so his English creditors would not find him. He had 8 children born in Pennsylvania, USA. Paternal surname spelling of his descendants are: Curstead, Custead, Custeed and Custard. I hope to one day write a genealogy book on my paternal line. I'm of English, Irish, Scot-Irish, French, Welsh, Scot, Dutch, German(Prussian & Hessian), Swedish, Levant and Morisco(Secret Muslim) Descent.
