Welcome to the Barton Database
Started as a "Why don't I photocopy other Barton's information while I'm in the library copying mine" project, this database has grown to over 62,000 names with richly documented sources.
Please note, though, that our database is secondary research and is not original research of the Barton Historical Society. Therefore, please use this tool as a starting point only and do your own original research.
Currently there are twenty-one different Barton lineages identified through the BARTON DNA Project. Where known the identified Lineage (clan) is displayed for each member on their individual page following the words Barton database: BRANCH. If your Barton ancestor does not have a Branch shown after the words Person ID [##] Barton Database, then no male Barton descendant has yet participated in the Barton DNA Project.
To keep the database to a manageable size only Barton's and their spouses (and the spouse's parents) are shown. Collateral (daughter) lines are important, though, and you may post yours along with your Barton line to the Family History page of our host organization http://www.bartonsite.org or to the very helpful http://www.worldfamilies.net
Please note that to protect the privacy of the living details about them are not shown.
Nobody knows your line better than you. If you spot discrepancies please notify us of any corrections, additions or deletions. Thanks!
