From on Thu, 8 May 2008
The surname Crago has various spellings in the available records in the USA , including my last name, Craigo, and also Cragoe, Cragow, Kraglow and Kruglow, its Celtic spelling. My cousin, Tom Crago, has some information about the spellings.
The Crago DNA study has been very helpful to show how various family lines are related. However, we have yet to have strong proof that our family is from Cornwall.
