My name is Homer Wiggins. I love doing geneaology and have traced my family back to my ancestor Thomas Wiggins who came from England to the Virginia colonies in the 1600s.
My family later moved to North Carolina then to Alabama where I was born and raised. Im back full circle in Virginia where I now reside.
Would love to find out where in England my ancestor came from when he boarded a ship called Primrose to Barbados then to Virginia.
