Crook emigration to the usa
« on: Saturday 19 August 17 19:41 BST (UK) »
Just a long shot but I am researching the Crook family surname and I am interested in the ancestry of General George Crook of the US army in the 1860s to 1880s. According to his autobiography he had Scottish ancestors and was wondering if anyone knows anything about this.
Thanks
Paul

Hi Paul, search the Crook surname at the Scotlandspeople website https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIup3suIDu1QIVbbHtCh1Fcw4TEAAYASAAEgKij_D_BwE

To see the images you will need to purchase credits, but it's the only source of original documents.  But, all the indexes are free to view once you have registered.

Familysearch.org is also helpful at times.

There are several Crooks to look through.  Good luck.  Cheers Maria (P.S. If you find anything, keep posting so we can help from afar).
