Foster Families in the United States

Research State Coordinators:

Okay, so we are having a little fun with the North and South designations of our Foster family.  But...

It is an interesting fact that when our Foster ancestors came to America from England that those who came from the north in England had a tendency to immigrate to the north of America.  They were usually from occupations involving manufacture and they lived in cities.

Those who were from the south of England came to America and immigrated usually to Virginia and then on to other southern states.  Their occupations were usually agriculture and farm life.

Perhaps this saying is true for our Foster family
Birds of a feather stick together!
