Uran Surname Project

The Uran/Urans Surname in the United States

The Uran Surname Project is a genealogical research site dedicated to the Uran/Urans surname in the United States . It is an attempt to gather and distribute information on the descendants of William Urin of Isles of Shoals, Massachusetts, and other Uran lines, who immigrated to the United States prior to 1940.  The Uran Surname Project database currently has 3480 Uran/Urans individuals. If you are a Uran or a Uran descendant, please consider contributing your ancestry or descendancy. Any data submitted to the Uran Surname Project will be cited to the contributor in the final publication and the contributor will be noted on the website.
