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.

I know this is off track but I am looking for information on the Muno family. My grandfather was Earl Raymond Moore. His mother was Mary agnes Muno. He was adopted by Moore. I am trying to find out if Mary Agnes was his birth Mother. He was born in new Mexico 1905 before they left for Oregon in 1909. Any information would be appreciated.

To fine your ancestors, , you must start with yourself, and work backwards. You will need to search the census, t find out where they lived. Your start can be done for free using familysearch.org. This will give your the census and then you can go from there to where your families were. on the web you can use, city, county, state sites. Good Luck. Taffy
