Swanton Family History Worldwide
by Louise May Swanton

This book was written by Louise May Swanton in 1989. She married into the Swanton family and spent an incredible amount of time and energy researching and organizing this Swanton information. I regret that I never had the chance to meet this amazing woman.

It's probably coincidental that my interest in researching my Swanton family history began within a month after Louise's death, but I like to think that she passed this project on to me. This section of my web site is dedicated to Louise May Swanton with admiration and appreciation.

Please note that this book was written in 1979, before the Internet. Some of the information contained here is inaccurate and outdated, as modern tools have made family research much easier and more accurate. Since these pages are images, I can't make changes to them directly. However, I have added a Corrections section for updated information that people send me about their family lines.
