Barton Historical & Genealogical Society
 Barton Database

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 101,000 names (including over 11,500 unique surnames) with richly documented sources. All information is freely available 24/7 worldwide with No Login necessary.

Please note, though, that our database is secondary (derivative) research and is not original research of the Barton Historical & Genealogical Society. Therefore, please use this tool as a starting point for your own original research.

Currently there are thirty-six 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: Lineage" If your Barton ancestor does not have a Lineage 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 sometimes the spouse's parents) are shown. Collateral (daughter) lines are important, though, and you may post yours along with your Barton line to the Ancestors of or Descendants of pages of our host organization Please note that to protect the privacy of living persons details about them are not shown unless specifically authorized by them. Nobody knows your line better than you. If you spot discrepancies please notify us of any corrections, additions or deletions. Thanks!
