The Family Name Of Kline.

These page will be about the Kline name I picked this name for no other reason then the lack of nothing else to do…..Now don’t get my wrong…it’s not that I don’t care about the name because I do….I care about all the names I put on my site, or they wouldn’t be here.

I found some of the information very interesting…..and I believe you will to. Although some of the information will be short…it makes it no less important. My job as a surname researcher is to give you as many leads as I can……be it large or small. These leads may help you look for information in places you never thought of before….and you may learn something about your ancestor you never knew before.

Note. The years will not be in order as I put the information down as I find it, so you may want to do a name search, also note this information will comes from the many departments of the library of congress.
