THE BARNFATHER FAMILY TREE

 

We have been tracing our family name BARNFATHER now for the past 5 years.  We have gathered lots of data over the years.  Here is our direct line which cuts off at 1900 because we wish to respect family who are still living. This is tracing ancestors back to 1763 although the family goes back much further.
