About Nelson/Roman Family
These are the family trees of the surnames Nelson and Roman.

The Nelson name starts in Kent going back to London, England. It ends up in Glasgow, Scotland. The Nelsons are supposed to be descended from the Clan of McNeil. A direct link has not yet been found. The main maternal branches are Blair, Cliff and Tollafield. One Nelson has married into the Irish Dohertys of Donegal and now lives there.

Lillian Tollafield's brothers all emigrated to Canada and one went on to Detroit, Michigan, USA. 
I was given a large Gedcom file from Pauline Isaksen. It contains a great many Tollafields, which I am still adding. She is  Pauline L. Tollafield; Lillian V. Tollafield's father's second cousin's granddaughter. She married a Norwegian and now lives there. So we have Norwegian cousins. 

I have recently been in contact with Agnes Blair's sister Margaret's descendant Margaret and have a whole lot of her branch to add. This branch of the family follows Scottish naming conventions, where children are named after their grandparents.

The Romans lived in London and most likely originated from Ireland. As were the Dixons. Mostly they stayed in the East End of London. The main maternal branches are Dixon, Eglese and Oastler. I was given paper copies of extensive research on the Oastler branch.
