About the family crest.
No, Richard (the Immigrant) Yarborough was never married to Frances Proctor! There was a contemporary English Richard Yarborough who was married to Frances, but neither ever left England.
"Laws" of Genealogical Research
Our mission is best described as:
We willingly share our information, asking only that full attribution be given to The Yarbrough National Genealogical & Historical Association, Inc., (YNGHA). The YNGHA is a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization organized under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
If you are a member of one of our extended Yarbrough families or of an allied family, we invite you to join our Association.
The latest issue of the Quarterly is available online. Beginning with the January 2014 issue, access will be limited to YNGHA members only.
The fall season is here, and the appearance of the site has changed to reflect the time of year. Overall, the site's content evolves slowly, although there will be some changes (mostly for the better) from time to time. Some are coming about as a consequence of the YNGHA's digitization project; others reflect the re-alignment of the growing number of subsidary pages and records of our site.
Records and Information Access
As the digitized records from the digitization project become available, a more secure access system will be implemented. In anticipation of that, the organization of the site content has been re-designed around a gateway entry format. Access through the gateway is now limited to viewers who
Who We Are...
We Yarbroughs represent the character which makes our nation great. While there is little doubt that our roots are from one of the oldest houses of Old England, we in America are yeomanry through and through. We are farmers, craftsmen, merchants, doctors, teachers, clergy, performing artists, civil servants, warriors, and more. Without us and our kind, life as we know it would be considerably different. We believe in our Maker, our family, our country, and ourselves. We do not accept charity from the state; rather, we give to others as much as we can. We do not whine and complain about our lot; we do what we can as best we can. We believe in leaving each place better than when we arrived. Above all, we respect others and welcome them into our lives. We have a strong sense of duty, civic pride, and a firm belief in justice. All in all, we are a good family, and each of us make it so.
