The Worland Family in America and Beyond

I began my life in the Puget Sound area of Washington State, on an island filled with forests and wild rhododendrons. I was separated from my Worland family there at an early age. Recently, I was reunited with my family and learned of my heritage. And so, this journey to know my ancestors began. The Worlands, Gideons, Newtons, Conards... they were the colonists, the settlers, the pioneers. They fought in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War. This is their story, and the story of a nation. -Deci Worland MacKinnon

The Doolittle surname: Doolittle is Norman; one of the members of William the Conqueror's expedition for Edward I in 1279, was named Rudulph Du Litell or de Dolieta (of Dolieta), a place on the Norman coast.
