The Worthington family has long been one of my favorite ancestral families for two reasons. 1. Because the surname is associated with some of my favorite research experiences and 2. Because several friends are also Worthington descendants who continue to bear the surname and I was able to extend their ancestral knowledge thanks to my own research into the family.
I owed a great debt to them due their kind acts and comments throughout the years and handing them twenty plus generations of their ancestry was a form of payback that meant far more than a pile of money in their opinion.
One of the books I used for inspiration and reference in my quest for sources was the book, “The Genealogy of The Worthington Family” by George Worthington.
Many readers also have Worthington ancestors. Hopefully the book will be equally beneficial in your own research.
