The July issue of the Yarbrough Family Quarterly is now available.
Join us at the Yarbrough National Convention in Charleston, SC!
The books featured in this article will be available at the Conference for everyone to view.
There is a boat tour of Charleston Harbor for $17.00, a discounted rate for conference attendees. A mimimum of 15 persons is needed to take advantage of this reduced rate. Let the know if interested in taking the tour.
We are very pleased you dropped by. This site is devoted to the extended Yarbrough and allied families. While there are a hundred–odd variant spellings of our name, we are all part of the Yarbrough family. The House of Yarborough traces its roots back to the mid–ninth century, AD. It's been in the New World since ca 1642, when Richard ("The Immigrant") Yarborough arrived and settled on Pamunkey Creek in the Virginia Colony. Since then, the family has spread across the southeastern and southwestern states and the far west, with others scattered across the rest of the country.
The photo at the right is of the 139 volumes of our Yarbrough Family Records, which were at the 2015 conference in Dallas, TX. These books will be with us at Charleston again this year, with all 159 volumes being available through the local Wi–Fi system.
There will be a volume of the English Yarborough history given away as a random prize at the conference. There will also be another volume or two about one of the Yarbrough families, as well as a couple of DVD's of the Yarbrough Family Records. The DVDs are fully searchable and each volume is indexed.
If you are a Yarbrough or a member of an allied family, we would be very pleased to have you as a member of the Association (YNGHA). Simply submit contact information and the name of the oldest ancestor in your line and pay your dues online or by mail.
The Yarbrough National Genealogical & Historical Association, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization, which came into being when a group of dedicated family members corrected the grave marker of the family's oldest known ancestor. We're quite proud of the heritage and history of our extended families, and the site has been configured to share as much as possible with our visitors. We ask only that our visitors register and/or sign-in to view the other pages here.
We also encourage all Yarbroughs to be DNA tested so and share their test data with us. This will help us greatly in unraveling the interetwined branches of our shared family trees. Already, our Yarbrough DNA Project has helped pin–point what the kinship is among several of our early New World ancestors. We still have a number, however, whose relationships are, to say the least, murky.
We also solicit from everyone stories and clippings about family activities. These might appear to be trivial, but they can help someone else in his/her search for ancestral data. So, send us your story. Don't worry about the grammar and syntax; just send it to
