Check out ancestry.com. I had no information past my grandfather and I traced my family back to Johannes Light of Pennsylvania. The Light family was very prominent in Lebanon County, PA. If you can trace your family to PA, chances are you decended from the same line. Before coming to the US in 1717 from Germany, the name was Licht. Chris is correct, there are a ton of Lights in PA.

hi, tryna trace LIGT family in Durban 2 generations ago. Uncles Doug and brother Joff (rey) and younger cousin names Audrey. Family closely related to Ashington family. Any assistance appreciated. I am looking to find my grandmother's (Eileen Alanah Light born about 1911). email@example.com
From what I know of our family heritage we came to Texas by way of Virginia then either Missouri or Atkansas before eventually settling in Llano county Tx. Does anyone have any history on this branch of the Light family. Jeff Light, Gun Barrel City Tx
Light is a common name from both England and Germany. The English variant spellings are Light, Leight, Lyte, and Lite. The German spellings are Leicht, Licht, and seldom Liecht. In the U.S., they are regularly anglicized to LIGHT. US lights of German origin are often from Pennsylvania and sometimes from North Carolina. Of course, they have migrated westward into various areas. English Lights in the US are usually found in New England, around the Great Lakes, and along the Canadian border. Again, these families have migrated across the US.
My last name is miller but my last name used to be light before i was adopted i have no history at all of what my heritage is at all
Licht is the German origin for Light. Actually, in Germany, it's more likely to be Leicht. In the U.S., it's sometimes Liecht, but more commonly Licht.
