am writing from Texas. I have traced my husband's ancestry
back to Ross on Wye, Hereforeshire, England. John Dubberly
(Duberly) was born in 1672. He died in Accomak, Virginia
(USA) in 1734. We have reason to believe that my husband,
Sam A. Dubberly, is a descendant of this line of the Dubberly
you tell us if any individuals with the family name of Dubberly
(Duberly or Dubberley) or a variation of the spelling, remain
in Ross on Wye? We have hopes of some day, traveling to
Ross on Wye and visiting this area where we believe my husband's
ancestral line had its start.
information you can give us, including names and/or addresses,
would be greatly appreciated. Maybe your local newspaper
can request information from individuals with the family
name to contact us (list Dubberly family from Ross in the
subject line). Meanwhile, we will continue to research the
Dubberly family name.
you know of any local connections with the Dubberly family
in Texas and would like to contact Irene, she can be contacted
directly at: Roddubbs@aol.com.
at Wyenot News, I receive literally thousands of family
research requests every year. I am afraid however that I
do not have the time to research genealogy for people personally.
of the genealogy research requests I receive are totally
unreadable because they are not straight and to the point
like the one above. They tend to start out with a list of
names of family mebmers, their hobbies and what they ate
for breakfast dating back to some time around 2000 BC and
go on by expecting me to automatically know off the top
of my head, what their third cousin six times removed does
on Sunday afternoons.
News' is linked to from a great many genealogy type web
sites. I did not ask for these links. They are purely an
assumption on the part of their creators that I am the slightest
bit interested in local genealogy.
If you do like tracing your family on the internet and end
up here, I am always willing to publish short, readable
enquiries such as the one above - for other people to answer.
