BK Directory of Ancestral Heads of NE familiesWe’re looking at the Hayden/Haydon/Heydon clans today, sharing what I found in the Directory of the Ancestral Heads of New England Families 1620-1700. I found it at the Carnegie Public Library in Pittsburgh. (Frank R. Holmes, compiler) (Genealogical Publishing Company: 1989). Page after page is filled with alphabetical entries of last names and then, if known, the origin of that name, and the earliest American people in New England with that name.
