NEW - A new page with a very basic outline of the line
            of Dennis Rardin brother of John Rardin SR.

The information is compiled from various researchers who have shared their information starting with the 1892 History of the Rardin Family compiled by J. K. (James Knox) Rardin of Charleston, Illinois.  Also  check the following for more extensive individual listings:



The listings are far from complete.  By working together and sharing our information and sources perhaps we can gather an accurate accounting of these generations.
A REMINDER:  Copyrights apply.  This information is for your personal use only.  Commercial use of any portion contained herein is expressly prohibited.
Rardin LINKS:  I would like to start a page with LINKS to Rardin Genealogy sites or sites with a Rardin lineage.  If you have a Webpage you would like listed please  Click here to send your Web Site information to me.
E-mail your additions and corrections to me and I will post them to this site.  Please cite your sources, proof, or if no proof - why you believe the statement to be true.  For now, please send info on only the first four generations.  Click here to send info for the Website.
Researchers:  To be listed on the Researcher page, you must give your permission for your name and contact address to be listed.  Click here to request a listing as a Researcher on this Website.
About Me:  I am a descendant of John Rardin JR and grew up on one of the original Rardin farms settled by the family in 1842 when they immigrated from Campbell and Pendleton Counties in Kentucky to Rardin, Morgan Township,  Coles County, Illinois. 
This is my first attempt at a Web page and the learning curve is steep,  so suggestions are appreciated.  As I learn more, I'll add more features.
