I am a Rogers that dropped the Ro"d"gers when my family came to New York, but our family is of German descent. I have found several places saying it is an English name derived from German language. But nowhere am I seeing German decent Rogders, or a history of the Surname. Any one have anything on that?
If you want to see if you are genetically connected to other Rogers, check out FTDNA.com , the 12 marker test at $49 (currently) will get you to your "Haplogroup" a DNA type you will share will all other direct male (father, son, father son) descendants of your line. And, may connect you to genetic cousins you did not know existed.
You don't have to be of predominantly European descent to match other males in your line. For example - Les - if your YDNA line came from a European ancestor, your YDNA will be the same as others from the same YDNA line regardless of apparent ethnicity. My family is predominantly of European origin - but you may be a close YDNA cousin. Until you test, there is no way of knowing.

I been trying the the missing root, of grand Mae Rogers. that came from Ireland, that moved from Cornwall. What I found out this much. On site. The name might of came after the Norman con. And some sites really don't know how far the last name goes. There is only one house of Rodgers, Rogers etc. The last name changes, like any other name. Glad I found this site. To hopefully fill the gaps.
My mums surname is Rogers, but her side of the family is of Brazilian descent. I have found several places saying it is an English name derived from Normans etc. But nowhere am I seeing Brazilian decent Rogers, or a history of the Surname. Any one have anything on that? Or why my mums surname is Rogers?
Rogers here, through my granddad but it got changed to scott later.
My dad is Sol Yuri Rogers he was born in Lisbon in 1955 he has a friend called Mike Rogers. WEIRD!!
It reinforced the similar existing pre 7th century Anglo-Saxon name "Hrothgar", the earliest reference to which is in "Beowulf", the epic poem of the Dark Ages. In England the name became very popular, as were its pet forms of Hodge and Dodge. The personal name was first recorded as "Rogerus" in the Domesday Book of 1086.
If your talking about Richard Rogers then...Rogers is perhaps best known for his work on the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the Lloyd's building and Millennium Dome both in London, the Senedd in Cardiff, and the European Court of Human Rights building in Strasbourg. He is a winner of the RIBA Gold Medal, the Thomas Jefferson Medal, the RIBA Stirling Prize, the Minerva Medal and Pritzker Prize.
My great grandparents are originally from England when they came to the USA they changed the spelling from Rogers to Rodgers.
