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.

Thomas THAYER, son of Richard THAYER, was christened 16 August 1596 at Thornbury, Gloucestershire, England and died 2 June 1665 in Braintree, Massachusetts.

Hello again Cinde, If you have early Thayer-related photos you would like to share for possibly future publication, I would be happy add any of these to the database. You would be credited as the submitter. Would you be interested in writing and sharing your Father's story in an article in the newsletter? Sincere best wishes, Patricia

I am researching a possible Thayer family connection. My father was adopted at birth, 1921, Niagara Falls. Possible Thayer family connection revealed through Y-DNA. Connection to adoptive family possible by 56th Batallion (Grenville Lisgars), or communities of Brockville North Augusta, Maitland Ontario.

Miss Myers. My name is Phil Krebs a likely descendant of Phineas (William D (b1866)/William D (b1814)). Our linkage to this line is a little weak on paperwork but it certainly seems plausible. My grandfather was adopted in 1904 (hence the name changes). Oddly enough, my DNA profile is a high degree of match to a known Benson ancestor and I noticed the given name of Benson in your ancestor line , any idea of the origin of that name?
