Holcombe Family Genealogy

Welcome to the Holcombe Family Genealogy home page where we post the genealogies of the descendants of Thomas Holcombeand related families. In addition we will keep information on the unverified ancestors of Thomas in hopes that we might promote research that will verify his ancestry.

Our Mission

Our intent is to expand the work of Seaver, McCracken, Bowman and others into the 20th Century. The first step of this process is to post on the web their genealogies compiled into one web site.

We then invite others to send their documented additions and corrections that will be posted as quickly as possible to promote additional feedback. We would like to use the web and its tools as much as possible.

Lastly, it is only appropriate to "give something back" so some of the census records we have come across have been transcribed and enhanced and are now available on the web.

This web research is not possible without the thousands of people who contribute to their local genealogy societies and post their own research to help others. Below are some sites of individual users and also some "commercial" sites that have searchable data bases. These are but a few of the many we have had the pleasure to find:

Salmon Brook Historical Society

Connecticut Historical Society

Census Files[Back to top]

Hartford County, Connecticut on the USGenWeb; this site changes frequently and is not under my control. This is an FTP site.  Start with the "indx" files at the end to find the surname you are looking for.  It will tell you which text file has your data.

Granby, Connecticut and Avon, Connecticut PDF files. You will need Adobe's Acrobat reader to view these files. These are 150 page documents that are nearly half a megabyte in size each and will take about 5 minutes to display on your computer.  If you want to print the whole thing, be sure to load a lot of paper. These are the entire copyrighted books as they were printed and bound and submitted to the copyright office.
