President’s Welcome

Thank you for the honor of serving as the President of Barton Historical and Genealogical Society. This is an exciting time for us at BHGS. We have many opportunities on the horizon to move forward with our research into the history and genealogy of all Bartons.

Our Executive Committee and Board are working diligently to provide up-to -date, reliable and verifiable information on our Barton ancestry. Our DNA Database Manager is making great steps with the DNA project. More and more Barton descendants are being tested and the information database is growing. The historical database is growing as well and we are beginning to archive our documents, pictures and Barton memorabilia into Evernote for digital access.

Our newsletter editor is looking for your facts and folk stories for publication in our quarterly newsletter. If you have birth announcements, wedding announcements, obituaries or other general news, please share with us for publication. Her contact information is on the website. Also, members will soon be able to access can now access the newsletter online and to obtain member information on their membership status through our "members only" page.

The Annual Meeting location and date for 2017 is October 19-21 in Charleston, South Carolina, USA. We are hoping for a good attendance as we gather more and more information on our cousins and ancestors.

A separate group of Bartons meet annually at the Tyger Baptist Church usually in August of each year (since 1935!). Here's info about the August 2017 gathering:

It's time again for our annual Tyger Barton gathering at Tyger Baptist Church, Highway 414, Taylors, South Carolina on Sunday, August 13th. We will join the congregation at 11:00, as a family, for lunch for then meet in the Fellowship Hall for lunch together.

We will provide pulled pork loin (with or without barbeque sauce) and each of you may bring a covered dish and/or dessert of your choice.

We have some information on historical importance and restoration of the locus wood covering on Mahilda McKinney Barton's grave in the cemetary which is very exciting.

If you have family members who we do not have on the email, please pass this along or let me have their contact information.

Look forward to seeing each and everyone one of you for this social and family time!

I so look forward to our success in finding out more about the Barton migration around the world and getting to know each of you.
