The surnames found on this page are some of those considered common amongst Melungeons and some of their 'cousin-groups' such as Red Bones, Carmel Indians of Ohio, the Guineas of WV, Turks and some Native American groups.

Not everyone with these names are Melungeon of course, and some Melungeon families will have other surnames because many Melungeon women 'out-married' carrying the genetics with them but not the surnames.

Not having one of these surnames in your lines, doesn't mean that you aren't Melungeon, just that you have found one of them YET!! :-)
