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