John Titford is a well-known British genealogy expert, author and lecturer. I had a chance to talk with John on the recent Wholly Genes 2008 Genealogy Conference/Cruise about his recently completed project of rewriting The Penguin Dictionary of Surnames. We also talked about several other topics, including his experience with Louisiana culture & history.
An Englishman in Louisiana? Indeed and with an interesting story to tell.
