Kirkpatrick Genealogy - Coded Lines Summary

Kirkpatrick Genealogy


Alabama Coded Lines

from KIRK. NL, v. V, #4

Introduction: We have no records for the entry of Gil/Kil/Kill/Kirk- patricks directly into FL, GA or AL prior to 1800. Therefore most of the entries for these states will be for families who moved from other states, mostly SC, into the southeastern states. Where a family has shown SC as a birth state, in census records etc. the SC coding will be used.
