My mother was a campbell. I have heard that my family came up from virgina. We all live in ky now.
My Granddad was a Campbell from Galway that came to Liverpool then to London. Both my grandparents and parents met at Lancaster Gate near Marble Arch. Home is where the hearth is.

With this website, you could end up with a completely irrelevant scroll on your wall. One which has no bearing on your family history. For example, no mention is made of the fact that the Irish surname Mac Cathmhaoil is also anglicized as Campbell.
Hey, I don't know a lot about my dad's side of the family. If you have family in SC...
I found it to be interesting to read all about my surname however to Liam Mac Graith's point...all information is important and you could perhaps not have all of the information. However, I thought it was quite a bit of information for my purposes. I was born and raised in the States, but for those from Europe with large families across Europe....all information is very, very important I feel. So it is basically up to the individual as to how much/deep one need go to learn about their surnames. My relatives lived in the States, but I have no idea where my grandfathers parents were born or their parents and so on. There are a lot of Campbell's...that is for sure! My mother's heritage is all German...I just tell people I am a Heinz 57! Have a good day!
Much of the research I've been reading on my surname, indicates the origin of Campbell's was initially Ireland (Ulster county, north Ireland) and these folks emigrated into Scotland (land of the Irish) across the Kintyre straight. I've gotten a family history back 6 gen & 8 gen on my paternal side, and there are about an equal mix of Scottish and Irish birthplaces.... How do I determine 'what' i am? Often I get asked (told) I'm Scottish because of the Campbell surname, though I really "feel" like I'm Irish (I've never been to either country, but, I've always had a strong desire to walk on Ireland) ... Anyone with some solid direction to info or data I can confirm my heritage/identity ?? I'd greatly appreciate it :) Thanks for reading. Sláinte!
My Great grandfather Delos Campbell was born in New York in 1829. He migrated to Illinois, then to Los Angeles California.He died in 1908. His wife was Adilaida Hernandez. If anyone has any information, please email me at email@example.com. Thanks, Bill......
