Newsletter for the interchange of genealogical data and history of the Burbank (and variant spellings) families who came mainly from England and Holland. Some settled in Massachusetts and New York in the 1600's. In the 1700's, some immigrated to Quebec (Canada), Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Most Burbanks descend from John Burbanck (b. 1602) of Rowley, Massachusetts, or from Thomas Burbanck (b. 1706) of Staten Island, New York. During the 1800's, some moved to Ontario (Canada), Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Washington D.C., and Wisconsin. One Luther Burbank (1849-1926) was a famous horticulturalist. Some were Morman converts, such as Lyman Austin Burbank (1839-1910) who married Betsy Ann Whitney (1847-1933), and lived in Chelsea, Utah. Later descendants also lived in Alberta and British Columbia (Canada), Cuba, France, Peru, and in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, Wyoming, and elsewhere. Some legally changed their surname to Bruce. Some had African American bloodlines.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
