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.

Members can now access the newsletter online and to obtain member information on their membership status through our "members only" page. 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.

Kathy Barton Gerwig

23 Feb 2022 - The two sentences [offending to some] explaining why (when we started 20+ years ago) we did not display the children of married Barton daughters with a new surname have been removed from our Home Page at our database. Thus, a policy change.
