The Yarbrough National Genealogical & Historical Association (YNGHA) serves as an umbrella organization for the extended Yarbrough and allied families. Our families are primarily located in the United States and the British Isles. There are over a hundred–fifty variant spellings of our name; however we spell our surname, we are all Yarbroughs. The House of Yarborough, one of the oldest in Great Britain, traces its roots back to the mid–ninth century, AD. We've been in the New World since ca 1642, when Richard ("The Immigrant") Yarborough arrived and settled on the Mattaponi River in the Virginia Colony.
From the Conference
As the old saying goes, there"s good news and there"s bad news — the good news is that we had a number of new faces, both new members and visitors. The bad news is that we had fewer than expected, but a good time was had by all. Once again, as the lead–off photograph shows, all the research books (all 164 volumes) were available to everyone, as well as digital copies, including all our past family journals & quarterlies.

Take time to visit the YNGHA Group Page on Facebook. There's always something of interest on the Yarbrough Group page. It's a great way to pose questions or ask for information about family lineages.
There are other renditions of the Yarbrough crest, as well as a detailed explanation of the heraldry of the crest.
