This site was developed as a way of sharing information about Barnum family lines of descent, from our early English forebears down to the present, and to provide a place for living members of the family to add their own information. It is intended as a reference site for anyone who is researching the genealogy of the Barnum, Barnam and Barnham families worldwide and is available 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world. Thanks are due to many family members and relations who have unselfishly shared their own information and research for the benefit of other researchers.

Here you'll find farmers and businessmen, soldiers and sailors, masters of the manor and indentured servants, Medal of Honor recipients and deserters, murderers and suicides, and thousands of people just like you and me. Some of them lived their entire lives without straying five miles from home, while others traveled the world over and lived lives filled with adventure. They all had one thing in common, though—they were our ancestors and our cousins!

The vast majority of the Barnum families of North America are descended from Thomas BARNUM (1625-1695), the immigrant ancestor, and their lines of descent are well represented here. Some of the English ancestors of Thomas are also present and there should be clues on this site to help in tracing the majority of Barnum lines of descent.

Enjoy your visit — and come back often!
