I'm in 6th grade and I'm doing a project about history. on my fathers side. and still have no idea how to write about this. lol
Thomas Farr is the name of my childs father who I gave up for adoption in 1972. I want to know more about his origens because I have recently found my child and am hoping to foster a relationship with her. I anticipate she will want to know about her ancestry. I was told that the name Farr is far from a common name, which added to my curiosity.
Contact Eugene Farr (he's on the web) he wrote a book about the Farr famiily. Good Luck!
Interesting debate on the name. The only thing I know is that FARR is a given surname (which probably explains the broken family tree - and different definition). I have heard multiple versions including: - Metal working / blacksmith (Ferric / Ferrum user) - Farrier (worker/slave) - Traveler - Farrier (Vet) - Farrenholtz - Knight - Problem solver So I guess its where (and when your from). However I have been told that the 2 oldest definitions are blacksmith/metalworker and problem solver. I imagine the other references were due to demand of ability. e.g. Horse needs shoes, I should make myself some armor (knight), I am needed overseas (traveller)..... what do you guys think?
