Surname Saturday: Stark

  If you've followed this blog long enough, you probably remember that one of my Connecticut family lines is the Stark family. The Starks are by and large of Scottish ancestry, descended from the Aaron Stark who arrived in the "New World" in 1608. They spread out fairly quickly. One branch remained in Connecticut, settling in the Groton/New London area.
  The Starks were and are very proud of their heritage. As a result, there are some great genealogical resources available in print and online. Charles R. Stark published several extensive genealogies including The Aaron Stark Family. The book is out of print in the original form but a reprint is available on Amazon.com. Online, Clovis LaFleur has compiled Stark history, the Stark Family Association Yearbooks and more to create "The Aaron Stark Family Chronicles."
  You should have some great information to start with...
