Neil Kesterson


The genealogy bug bit me a few decades ago. I've traced solid connections back past King Charlemagne, twisting through England and France on the way. My Scots-Irish ancestry is the heaviest, but it seems to be the hardest to trace. I have traced my Scottish heritage back to Clan Haig. My ancestor's grandson started the oldest surviving Scottish distillery, Haig, which can still be found on shelves today. I also have strong German and Welsh roots with a spattering of Norse, Swedish, and southern Africa. My public profile on Ancestry can be found here. For an interesting exploration into one of my ancestor's time in the Revolutionary War in Georgia, visit this Storymaps page.
