This is Dave Baugh, Ivan's son. For those who have not heard, Ivan passed away suddenly on September 1, 2017. While it was hard to lose him so suddenly, we are blessed that when it was his time, he just went. I have gained control of the website and will ensure its future. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or suggestions.

I develop and maintain these genealogy web pages. A group of us scattered across the United States have contributed to the genealogical information posted here. To join us or to contribute to our research write me: welcome any interested researchers.

List of researchers

I have adopted a numbering system to help reduce confusion between the many James, John, Elizabeth, Daniel, etc. that appear in succeeding generations and in the families of siblings. For example:

1 identifies William Baugh, the Immigrant, from whom most Baugh families will trace their lineage.
2 represents the second child of William Baugh
3 corresponds to the third child of #2
4 denotes the fourth child of #3
5 labels the fifth child of #4
6 signifies the sixth child of #5

Sammy Baugh of the Washington Redskins fame, died Wednesday, December 17, 2008. You can read about his accomplishments on Yahoo.

Years ago I read the book Roots by Alex Haley. In the book he wrote about having Baugh ancestry, in Alabama as I recall. This web site outlines his family ancestry.
