Cover of Selections from Searching for ScruggsAnyone interested in the stories of the family of Scruggs from the earliest known records in Britain to modern times should purchase a copy of this publication.

A reviewer states:  I just received my copy of the Selections from ‘Searching for Scruggs’… The book is filled with interesting information that has been found by some of the most ardent researchers of the Scruggs line. The 388 pages are indexed for names and the book includes the latest historical finds from resources in England and from DNA research…I think the book will rival the noted Dunklin book that most Scruggs researchers start with… The Dunklin book reads more like the naming of descendants in Exodus whereas this is an interesting history of various lines of our ancestry punctuated with articles written by members over the years on the various Scruggs lines. I consider it a welcome addition to my personal research library.

Spring 2013 Searching for Scruggs issued (Volume XXXII, Number 1) http://www.scruggsfam.com/2013/06/spring-2013-searching-for-scruggs-issued-volume-xxxii-number-1/ Sun, 23 Jun 2013 04:01:52 +0000 http://www.scruggsfam.com/?p=42 The Spring 2013 issue showcases some very interesting work by our members.  Lura Wight has done everyone a great favor by gathering together in one place a tremendous amount of information around the 18th century Goochland/Buckingham couple, James and Hannah Allen Scruggs.  Two other articles are fruits of our DNA project combined with historical research efforts.  Both are surprises – one relates to a Scruggs line that does not match the other Scruggs lines and the other is a totally unexpected match with Scruggs DNA.  Both provide fodder for speculation – and further research!   Finally there is a most enjoyable, nostalgic article about summers spent in rural northern Alabama with Scruggs grandparents in the post-World War II years.  If you are not a member, why not join and start receiving Searching for Scruggs?
