Welcome to the McFarland family genealogy. Family units are arranged alphabetically by the first name of the father (or single-parent mother). Links are provided to enable you to move up and McFarlandn each lineage. To follow a line back in time (ancestors), click on the underlined portion of “(son of …)” or “(dau. of …)” beneath the name of the person you want to trace back. To follow a line forward in time (descendants), click on the name of the person whose offspring you want to see. A plus sign (+) following a name means that that person had one or more children, but that family group has not been added to this web page. To view documentation, including census data, click on the link “documentation and notes” below a family.

How you can help. All information, especially source material, for inclusion in this web page should be sent to info@vfthomas.com or mailed to “McFarland Genealogy” at the address at the top of this page. And, of course, please report all errors.

A little work by each of us will save a lot of work for all of us.

The earliest McFarland families reported in the census records for Mount Desert Island were those of Benjamin and John Jr., both recorded in the 1830 census of Eden (now Bar Harbor). There were two McFarland families in the 1840 census of Eden: John's (perhaps the same John as John Jr. of 1830) and Leonard's.
