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 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?
My Father had just told me that my family came from Ireland and landed in New York, but my grandmother says we have German and Polish descent.
Same here. German, Polish, and Irish. interesting...
I'm a Hocak Winnebago Native American. My grandfather was the whitest guy IN THE WORLD! He was Irish, and a slew of other things I wish I could have asked about. If it means anything, his daughter from his previous marriage (before he found a Winnebago Woman) traced the name back to Denmark, a few hundred years ago. It's kinda crazy to me because my Grandmother's half, I myself can trace all the way back to the Wisconsin area before the French came over, but my Grandfather's side, I would need countless resources and scientists to go over the sea and far away.
as u see i am a rogers and dating back using my coat of arms and from my mothers side aswell clegg means i am 100% anglo saxon. the name was given to a skilled person as in skilled in war with arms not only this the saxons came in tribes and many of them where from close or in german lands in my case traveling into france and then the uk as we call it. now after the norman conquest many with the name rogers traveled to irish lands and to the us ext if rodgers is spelled like this it could be and its also proven in other cases that the spelling of the age has no dictionary therefore not knowing the correct way to spell roger rogier rodgiers so many ways it was spelled wrong more than likely we have the same bloodline only dna can prove it the first rogers was dated in about 1050 as this is when tax was forced
We might be related, perhaps. If i become wealthy i'll do some oprah-style research!
It's interesting to find out about the possibility of a sephardic connection with the name.
I am also a Rogers of African American decent My grandfather is white but todays society doesn't have Any remorse for a half breed searching for answers.. I love all races that's what makes us ALL beautiful.
Being of African-American descent my ancestors probably came from or had been a slave under one of the original "Rogers". Rogers surely isn't of any african origin.
surnames as well as house addresses have a similar reason for coming into being. Where and who to collect money from.
Am a rogers of irish english ancestry
Rogers was originally the Irish surname McRory, anglicized from Mac Ruadhri, and originated in Counties Derry and Tyrone. It can also be an Anglo-Saxon English surname that originated in Cornwall, and even a Spanish and Portuguese surname that originated in Old Castile, in Spain.
I am from the family line of MacRuairi/Rogers from Tyrone (Omagh/Gortin)... I know that there is a connection in Rogerstown Texas to this line....and there is a connection to Davy Crockett...they also went to North East US...reach out if you woUld like to discuss/investigate more!
Hmm. not sure bout my personal line to my name.. be interesting to hear what new things u guys find out though! alotta scottish type features in my family so maybe it comes from that way...
It would be interesting to see where in Ireland my line goes, my Great-Great-Great Grandfather immigrated to New York in 1848 but he came from Cork County, I don't know where he lived before that
Trying to connect the dots
I am a RODGERS using the "D" and I'm African American I would love to know the origin of my last name :(
John, my family is rogers and from cork as well.
I am Rogers from cornwall England I've been looking up the surname and found references to being a anglicized verious of Rodriquez. I did'nt really think much of it until i went to a local maratime in Charlestown, Uk. There was a display about pirates with a picture of Joey Rodriguez a.k.a Joseph Rogers.
