Welcome to the new location for our Newcomb genealogy discussions. We are in the process of migrating the old site to the new, so please be patient. Once the transition is complete, site operation should be even easier then before.


  1. Wow! A whole blog dedicated to the Newcombs! I'm amazed. I've been working on my family genealogy for a while, and finally getting to the Newcomb line. Not sure who you admins are running it (would be nice if you add an "about" page) but I sure am happy and grateful to find you!! Happy to be here:)

  2. Amanda, welcome! I'm the administrator here, and a descendant of Captain Andrew Newcomb. I've been researching Newcomb history (not just my own line) for several years and started my Newcomb blog in 2004. From time to time I post an updated version of my database on Ancestry's free Rootsweb Worldconnect project. If you're interested, you can go to http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ and jump to the rkwest database.

  3. Cool.
    I am a descendent of Leroy Newcomb, I've seen the Newcomb book from 1870's but haven't had a chance to work through it all. Can't quite figure yet how Leroy fits into the picture....
    will check out your rootsweb page:)

  4. The Newcomb Genealogy was updated B.M. Newcomb in the 1920s. Since then, technology has made it a lot easier for us to collect and correct information. My database contains a lot of corrections and updates to the earlier research. (Many of these can be browsed by clicking on the "Corrections" link in the "Categories" menu.)


PLEASE! If your comment or question is not directly related to this post, send it to me as email (see email link in the right-hand column of the blog). I can give it a separate post so people can find it in its own right.
