On my mother’s side of the family, we are one of the Lincoln familieswho settled in Hingham, Mass. from England. My grandfather, Freeman Lincoln, a writer, was once presented with a family tree, indicating we were indirect descendants of Abraham Lincoln. While I do not have that family tree in my possession, it is plausible that we are related.
How would one go about doing research on this, and what are your thoughts?
The first thing I would do is try to get a copy of the family tree somehow. Even if it’s just a photo of the tree or just a list of the names and dates on the tree. You can also research your family yourself on ancestry.com or any of the other genealogy sites starting with your parents and working your way backwards. You can also hire a professional genealogist to do this for you too.
