About Camorlinga and Allied Familes
I began this page and my interest in genealogy out of frustration. I knew almost nothing about my predecessors nor did it seem, much of the rest of my family. My father's side especially lacked any sort of family history. Below you will find the results of my and some other dedicated family members labor. This has been years in the making and I have learned a ton along the way. Each name has been input by hand, I do not merge GEDCOM files. This is to help minimize errors and fact check along the way. I have broadened my research to include other allied families such as Gleason, Tucker, Madden and Scully.

A Note on Camorlingas:

If you have additional information that is not listed, please forward it to me (Jason Camorlinga) at jason.camorlinga@biola.edu I am interested in adding any information such as:
  • Dates of birth
  • Dates of marriages
  • Dates of death
  • Family stories
  • Missing Names
DNA evidence from multiple family branches suggest that the Camorlingas originally came from Spain to Michoacán, Mexico. There are at least four main Camorlinga lines descended from: Rumaldo Narciso Marcelo Felipe I have found many variations of our last name, most of which are most likely due to poor record keeping and bad hand writing.
  • Camolinga
  • Carmolinga
  • Camorlenga
  • Camorlingo
  • Camarlinga

A Note on Royalty:

You may notice that I have traced my lineage to Charlemenge the Great and beyond. As another genealogist put it, linking to royalty is just "bragging rights". If you are interested, there was a mathematical study called "Recent Common Ancestors of All Present-Day Individuals" which says that that everyone in the world is descended from Nefertiti and Confucius, and everyone of European ancestry is descended from Muhammad and Charlemagne. Now you just have to figure out the puzzle!

A Note on B.C. Dates:

Tribal pages does not allow for or recognize dates before Christ. Hence I have labeled them as A.D. with a note B.C. after them. This can look a bit confusing if you do not know what you are looking at. Please note that these are more for fun and not necessarily accurate. There are likely to be errors this far back!

Notes on Surnames:

  • Hispanic Surnames

    Many non-Hispanics may get confused with what looks like multiple names. Jose Alvarez Olvida may look like the Alvarez is a middle name. However Alvarez is the last name of the father and Olvida would be the last name of the mother. I find this way of naming to be great and very helpful in geneological research.
  • Patronymic Surnames

    Patronymics, last names derived from a father's name, were widely used in forming surnames, especially in the Scandinavian countries. Occasionally, the name of the mother contributed the surname, referred to as a matronymic surname. Such names were formed by adding a prefix or suffix denoting either "son of" or "daughter of." English and Scandinavian names ending in "son" are patronymic surnames, as are many names prefixed with the Gaelic "Mac," the Norman "Fitz," the Irish "O," and the Welsh "ap." Examples: The son of John (JOHNSON), son of Donald (MACDONALD), son of Patrick (FITZPATRICK), son of Brien (O'BRIEN), son of Howell (ap HOWELL).
  • Welsh Names

    "ap" means "son of" in the same way as the Scottish "Mac". On a side note you can see the progression of some of these names. Examples of these are Pritchard (ap Richard) and Bowen (ap Owen with the P hardened to 'b')
  • Scandinavian Names

    Children would be given a first name and their last name would be their fathers first name followed by sson or sdotter/sdatter depending on sex. So my boy and girl would be named Awesome Jasonsson and Cool Jasonssdotter. So if you see a number of Olofsson in the tree they are not necessarily related, they just all had a dad named Olof.
  • Van and Von

    Van is dutch and simply means of. "van der Meulen" = of the Mill. Von was/is restricted to aristocratic use and is of Germanic origin but it also means of.
  • dit names

    A "dit name" is an alias given to a family name. Compared to other alias or a.k.a. that are given to one specific person, the "dit" names will be given to many persons. One thing that can make it difficult to find your ancestor is that he or she may have been using a different surname from the one that you expect. You will need to make yourself aware of any "dit" names that might be associated with the surname you're tracing, and if you can't find someone under the name of his child, you may find him under the "dit" name. "Dit" in French means "say" and in this context, it means "called." In other words, a person might be Antoine Pépin dit Lachance, which means that he had an ancestor named Pépin, but he chooses to use the name Lachance instead. So he is Antoine Pépin called Lachance. Some surnames, such as Roy, have had several different "dit" names. You should be aware that usually a different "dit" name indicates a different family. For example, Siméon Roy dit Audy and Antoine Roy dit Desjardins were not related to each other. The same is true for Pépin dit Lachance and Caillot dit Lachance - they are not related families. - Info from http://www.lachance.org/dit.html
  • ???

    Surnames have not been around for a great deal of time. If there were no known last names I just put ??? because Tribal Pages made me put something. Another way to do it is I would put of/de "location" as the surname. Titles should not be used as surnames but in some cases I did if there was no surname available.
