The Back Rhodes of Our Genealogy

Welcome to, aka "The Back Rhodes of Our Genealogy" website!

Carl, and Elaine (Grove) Rhodes, abt 1978

Hi, This is Carl, the host of this site. My wife, Elaine and I have been doing our family history for well over thirty years. I can't think of anything I would rather do, than learn about our family, and the times in which they lived.


History of the Rhodes Family name. English (chiefly Yorkshire): topographic name for someone who lived in a clearing in woodland. This, the most common form of the name, has been influenced in spelling by the English name of the Greek island of Rhodes (Greek Rhodos), with which there is no connection.
