The Swanborough Family Tree

Research Project:



Worldwide Reunion #2 July 2005



Tracing our "roots" became a reality with widespread use of the Internet and the World Wide Web. E-mail enabled distant relatives to meet in cyberspace and exchange family tree information from their family branches. The materials are being consolidated here on this web site so all family members can review, add to, correct or comment upon or wonder at the information we have gathered from diverse locations over many years. Most libraries now provide access to the web so no one need miss out on this family information. Whether your name is Swansbro, Swansbrough, Swanboro, Swanborough, Swansbury, or variations thereof, it appears your history began in England in the Wiltshire area, probably as far back as pre-Christian settlements in the area. There is no question that we were around in the Saxon time period.

This is an ongoing family history quest, and if you wish to join us or have questions, please e-mail any member of the research team. If you have information showing any errors in our relationships, please let us know what to correct. The web enables a dynamic ever-growing family tree. We welcome any and all comments, advice, leads, and help. The Web has enabled us to get this information together and out to the Swanborough worldwide family.

Family E-Mail Listserve:

SWANBOROUGH. A mailing list for the discussion and sharing of information regarding the Swanborough surname and variations (e.g., Swansborough) in any place and at any time. Mailing address for postings is To subscribe send the word "subscribe" (without the quotes) as the only text in the body of a message to (mail mode) or (digest mode). Or you can ask Bonnie to subscribe you to it, by e-mailing your request to her at the address at the bottom of this page.

For those of you who do not know what a listserve is, it is where everyone sends a message to one e-mail address and it is automatically forwarded to everyone else on the list. The regular listserve gives you messages as soon as they are sent while the digest version sends you a day's worth of messages. You are encouraged to sign up and just "listen" in to the discussions about things we are discovering. It also serves as an easy way to get information out about the reunion and other plans we are considering. You needn't be a team member to join the list.
