We invite you to embark on a journey tracing your family’s history. The Thayer Families Association was founded in 1991 and is the result of many dedicated Thayers as well as non-Thayers. Publication of a definitive, comprehensive Thayer genealogy was a stated goal of the TFA founders so that anyone could learn about their ancestry and the history of this truly remarkable surname. This enormous project is well underway with the publication of Volume VII – Descendants of Thomas Thayer, Immigrant to America 1637, Through his Grandson Isaac and First Wife Mercy Rockwood (click this link for more info & an order form). Everyone in the Thayer Families Association welcomes you to the wonderful opportunity to meet your cousins! There is an enormous amount of information here and available through the TFA. Please browse through our site and feel free to contact us if you would like any further information. NOTE: When e-mailing, please mention you saw our site, thanks.

Your website was just brought to my attention this morning, along with the short film about Sylvanus Thayer. My 9th g-grandfather was Thomas Thayer. I would love to know more about the Thayers who are my ancestors. Thank you for making all this available!
