Kin(g)(s)man Families in Canada

There have been several migrations of Kinsman (Kingsman) (Kingman) (Kinman) individuals to Canada, especially in the various Kinsman lines from Cornwall and Devon.  This section tries to list all the major groups as they become known.  Whether all, or any, of these groups link into a common family unit has not yet been proved.  There is a DNA project in progress which may help to show this, but the results so far (of only three inviduals) show two distinct family lines, with a possible third as yet untested.  More participants are needed in order to try and knit these separate limbs together.  Please contact me via the e-mail link on the front page if you'd like to join in.

A lot of the work on putting the separate trees together as shown here as been done by others.  All comments, corrections and contributions are welcome.

The links to Canadian families from this page currently include information on 1,264 individuals.
