Know your oldest ancestor? Peter Yerburgh's History of the Yarbrough Family (Volume 134 of The Blandford Series) traces the history of the purported eleventh oldest English family house. Volume 135 is a compilation of the articles written by Peter over the lifetime of our Assocation; the set is also available for those who wish to have this wonderful collection of material. These two volumes comprise a definitive history of our family's origins.


The Blandford Series...

These volumes, which were rolled out at the conference in Dallas last September, are offered as a complete set on a single DVD and as individual volumes on a CD. There are presently thirteen family sets for those ancestors for which we have multiple volumes of records. All volumes are indexed and searchable with Adobe® Acrobat Reader. A preview of each of these volumes is now online, but the complete files are maintained offline.

Browse the Master Index; it's quite impressive!

Please note that The Blandford Series will be a undergoing a continuing review and editing process. The focus of this effort is to correct as many of the deficiencies that exist in many of the volumes comprising the series. Members who remain in paid up status are entitled to updated versions of volumes which they may have purchased. Simply respond by email or letter to any notices of volume upgrades that may be published, either on this site or in The Yarbrough Family Quarterly.

Voices from the past...

The first two clips are of Senator Ralph Yarborough, (Dem., TX) relating the truth about three pervasive family myths and about the historical pedigree of the Yarbrough family. The third clip is Charles Henry Yarbro providing the historical background of the YNGHA. Both were immensely proud of their shared Yarbrough heritage and both are missed.
