Great News! Master Genealogy Book Completed!

We are pleased to tell you that we believe we now have every name included from our 522-page master genealogy book, Merriam Genealogy in England and America, which was compiled by Charles Henry Pope in 1906 and re-printed by John Merriam Kingsbury of Bullbrier Press in 1986. Richard Merriam, who finished the input from the Pope book several weeks ago, continues to add new persons at a feverish pace as family worksheets arrive almost daily. This was a large undertaking covering many years of input and Merriam Family Tree is indebted to the following individuals who made this a reality:

Kit Cutting
Richard Merriam
Connie McCann-Wilkes
Jerry Boor
Steve Merriam


The Merriam family lives primarily in North America. The purpose of this website is to track all Merriam / Meriam descendants at least to their 1638 ancestry roots in Concord, Massachusetts. Look for your ancestors, places, photos, find interesting stories and check the "What's New?" section in the menu at left. Once you request and obtain a user ID, you can submit your own family branch information through the WORKSHEET tab while reviewing any of your ancestors.

You can download reports directly to your home computer, using the universally accepted (and free), pdf file format. Don't be afraid to experiment! You can't hurt our website by clicking on the wrong thing – just click away and see if you can figure out the powerful features of the database.
