I’m a Squire Munro Descendant
I am descended from Squire Munro (1758-1835) who settled in Central New York in 1799. If you are related, please share this page with other family members and encourage them to participate in this project. We want to hear from everyone!
Project Description & Welcome
The Squire Munro Project is a genealogical research endeavor that carries on work originally begun at the first Munro Family reunion in Elbridge, NY in 1876.
The ultimate goal is to research, write and publish a comprehensive family history book on the ancestry, life and descendants of Squire Munro (Manro) (1758-1835) — and to maintain it indefinitely. To achieve this, and to establish a lasting legacy, many smaller research collection projects and goals are underway along with other efforts to unite the family and preserve our common heritage.
This project is for anyone with a connect to Squire Munro regardless of your last name. While there are various spellings of ‘Munro’ found in the family — including Munro, Munroe, Monroe and Manro — this project also includes all families of daughters whose name changed when they married, including almost a thousand different names. Check for your name to see if you might have a connection.
Including spouses and adopted children, Squire Munro Descendants have been born, died or buried in many different countries across the globe.
We have a small group of active contributors consisting of project managers and transcribers who are directly responsible for the recent progress we have made. Also, many individuals have contributed family history records and data to helps us confirm and fill in their branch of our collective family tree. See some of the people who have contributed to this project.
