Welcome to our site!
We are very pleased you dropped by. This site is devoted to the extended Yarbrough and allied families. While there are a hundred–odd variant spellings of our name, we are all part of one of the dozen or so oldest English houses. Our family traces its roots back to the mid–ninth century, AD.
This is the gateway page for members of the Yarbrough National Genealogical & Historical Association, Inc. (YNGHA). We're quite proud of the heritage and history of our extended families, and the site has been configured to share as much as possible with our visitors. We ask only that our visitors register and sign-in to view other pages at this site. The YNGHA is also a corporate body; while that may be of interest to non-members, much of it is corporate data and information and thus is not shared. The records that are accessible here contain some of our intellectual property; those records we wish to safeguard as much as practicable.
If you are a member of our family association, and your dues and email address are current, you should have been notified about accessing the the pages at this site. If for some reason you have not received a login name and password, click here to send an e–mail requesting your login information. If you are a Yarbrough or a member of one of our allied families, we invite you to join our family association. It's quite simple — just click here to do so. Upon payment of your dues, a login name and password will be e–mailed to you.
The Blandford Series...
...of Yarbrough Family Records, 140 volumes in all, is now available! These volumes, which were rolled out at the conference in Dallas last September, are offered as a complete set on a single DVD and as individual volumes on a CD. There are presently thirteen family sets for those ancestors for which we have multiple volumes of records. All volumes are indexed and searchable with Adobe® Acrobat Reader. A preview of each of these volumes is now online, but the complete files are maintained offline.
Copies of these volumes may be ordered from our Book Store.
Who we are...
We Yarbroughs represent the character which makes our nation great. While there is little doubt that our roots are from one of the oldest houses of Old England, we in America are yeomanry through and through. We are farmers, craftsmen, merchants, doctors, teachers, clergy, performing artists, civil servants, warriors, and more. Without us and our kind, life as we know it would be considerably different. We believe in our Maker, our family, our country, and ourselves. We do not accept charity from the state; rather, we give to others as much as we can. We do not whine and complain about our lot; we do what we can as best we can. We believe in leaving each place better than when we arrived. Above all, we respect others and welcome them into our lives. We have a strong sense of duty, civic pride, and a firm belief in justice. All in all, we are a good family, and each of us make it so.
In genealogical terms, an allied family is one related by marriage. Prior to the modern era, these families were an intergral part of an individual family's life and livelihood. They worked together, immigrated together, traveled together, sharing both the good times and hardships of life in the growing New World. Indeed, a family's very existence often depended upon its allied families.
Registration permits visitors to view additional pages at this site; otherwise this is the only page open to public view. The online archives are now restricted to dues paying members of the Yarbrough National Genealogical & Historical Association, Inc. (YNGHA). We hope you understand this requirement is part of our protection of the YNGHA's intellectual property. Please register if you haven't already done so and/or sign-in, in order to access other pages. Note that registration at this site does not automatically grant access to the FaceBook YNGHA Group pages.
If you have an announcement about a family reunion or suggested site links, please send to the YNGHA. We would be pleased to add them. No ads, please.
