Welcome to the Thompson Family Genealogy website. The first thing that should be said is this site is about much more than the Thompson family. Aside from Thompson, the dominant surnames you will find information about are Baldwin, Anders/Andrews, Worsham, Rankin, Pegoda, White, Erickson, Vandermade, Covell, and Penton.

The primary content of the website is the family tree which contains two major types of pages:
  • Individual pages:
  • Each person in the genealogy has his or her own page. Information pertaining only to that individual will appear on this page. You can also see the basic information about the parents and grandparents of the individual. From the individual page, if the person has been married, there will be "Marriage #" links to...
  • Marriage pages:
  • These are very reminiscent of traditional family group sheets. They convey the basic information about the husband, the wife, the children (if any), and the spouse(s) of each child. Things that deal with both the husband and wife will typically be found on this page rather than their individual pages.
The links below will take you to different areas of the website. Enjoy, and contribute if you can! Remember, the site is forever in progress, can always be improved, and will certainly contain unintentional mistakes!

NEW book in progress!
I have finally begun a book on the descendants of John Pegoda, Sr. of Walker County, Texas called "The Pegoda Family in America". The book is "complete" but is awaiting input from distant relations (hopefully). The current version can be downloaded as a PDF document. Latest version is 11/26/2014. Check back regularly for future updates and the final version.

Much of the information about my direct ancestors found on this website has been compiled into a book called Leaf, Stem, Branch, and Root. The book can be downloaded as a PDF document (72 MB).
