Johnson - Johnston Family History and News

Welcome to the Home page of the Johnson Family Club -- a national family club for all descendants of Johnson - Johnston families, founded to gather and preserve family history of all Johnson - Johnston families.

Our website includes a Johnson HISTORY section, a family NEWSLETTER, a Johnson family QUERIES section and other sites for you. See the INDEX below. If you are a Johnson / Johnston or descendant of a Johnson, this is your homepage.

The Family Club is dedicated to gathering and preserving the history of all Johnson/Johnston families. Our website is planned as a clearing house for information on the many different Johnson - Johnston families in America. Johnson families, because they are so numerous, have been among the most difficult to trace. It could be easier--with more cooperation between relatives. This is the purpose of this website: we hope to create one central source for all Johnson / Johnston descendants to come to for information about their ancestors.

Johnson Family History

There are of course, many different Johnson - Johnston families in America and not all are blood-related. However, we do have a common bond in our desire to gather and preserve our family heritage. So please, don't write and ask if you are "related"--this club is for ALL the different Johnson - Johnston families. Most of the pioneer Johnson families who settled in the English Colonies before they gained independence came from the British Isles including England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland. Many of the Johnson immigrants during the last 100 years came from Scandanavian countries as well as Britain. Click on "HISTORY" in the INDEX below to go to the family history section.

Famous Johnsons- Johnstons

Our newest section is for famous and notable Johnsons-Johnstons who became famous or notable in the fields of government (US president, vice president, US House of Representatives, US Senate, governor, lieutenant governor, state legislatures, state officers, federal government posts, etc.); the movies, television, education, religion, the arts, sports and other endeavors. Click on "FAMOUS" in the INDEX below.


You can post a memorial to a lost loved one in the "Memorials" section. If you want to honor a deceased spouse, parent, grandparent, ancestor or other loved one, you can post a memorial with poems; information on birth, death, marriage, children, etc.; a photo; personal memories, etc. Click on "MEMORIALS" in the INDEX below.


If you are looking for Johnson/Johnston ancestors, you can post a message/query in the queries section. You may be able to find someone who can help you with information and records on those "missing" or lost ancestors. Some distant relative may have a family Bible with all the facts you have been looking for. If you are looking for a particular ancestor, some other researcher may have already found the information you need and might be able to help you. Or you may be able to find other descendants who can tell you more about your living relatives. You can post a query about a Johnson - Johnston ancestor here to help you solve problems. Click on "QUERIES" in the INDEX below.

Cemetery Records

Another one of our major projects is to gather and preserve cemetery records / tombstone inscriptions of all Johnson / Johnston relatives, including their descendants. Go to the "HISTORY" section and jump from there to the "CEMETERIES" section to learn more about this and for online cemetery records.

Family Newsletter

We also have an online family newsletter, with news, obituaries of deaths of Johnson relatives, wedding announcements, engagements, anniversaries, birth notices, school news, feature articles and more about YOUR family. Click on "NEWS" in the INDEX below.

For all this to succeed, we NEED YOUR HELP. Send your family news -- especially about deaths, weddings, births, engagements, anniversaries, school news, new graduates, relatives in the military service, etc. for the family newsletter; let us know about reunions in your family branch; and most importantly, send your family history to preserve in the Family Library.

The Johnson Family National Library is a collection of every type of record, both public and private, on the Johnson families (with emphasis upon those with roots in the South. Before you ask -- it includes ALL Johnson / Johnston families and no, we are not all blood related. But we are cooperating together to preserve our families' heritage.

We are trying to gather and preserve copies of every kind of public document, including US and state census records, wills, marriage licenses and bonds, estate records, deeds, church records, cemetery tombstone inscriptions, birth and death certificates. Also old tax lists and voter's lists, military records from the beginning of the nation up to the present, old letters, family Bible records, published items from books & magazines, obituaries, wedding announcements, etc.

You are invited to join in this project. By cooperating and working together, we can make it possible for future generations of our family to know about themselves, their family and their heritage--without having to spend a lifetime of research wandering all over the South. You are urged to send information and copies of records on your Johnson branch to preserve in the Family Library.

Johnson Reunions

Post your reunion info here - free!

If you are planning a reunion of your Johnson - Johnston family branch and want to let relatives know, send us the details and we will post the message here for you - free. Please send complete details about the date, time and place the reunion will be held; if reservations for motel, etc. are needed and a person to contact, with a mailing address, telephone number and email address if you have one. If it is an annual gathering, tell us some history of the event.

AFTER the reunion, send details of the event for another story. Tell how many attended and what cities and states were represented; names and hometowns of the oldest and youngest who came; activities held; history programs, etc. If it is an annual event, and you have elected officers, tell us their names and hometowns. Stories on reunions are in the family newsletter. Click on "NEWS" in the Index below.

The Johnson Family Club is just what its name implies--it is a FAMILY club devoted to gathering and preserving our families' heritage and make this available to all descendants.

A family club is necessary to sponsor these projects. As with any kind of club, a family club cannot survive without MEMBERS. If there were no family club supported by your membership dues and donations, then our Family Library, this website and other projects would not have funds to exist. Join us and help make this dream possible.

If you are proud to be a part of your family, then join with us and help preserve our family heritage. Our main goal is to preserve the history of ALL the Johnson families and make this information available for future generations. Our dream is to establish a major collection of family records of every kind on our families.
