    I'm sort of the default genealogist for our branch of the family, although I've fallen behind of late. Some links to resources that I found useful are here (you can see I haven't updated the page for 6 years):

    I can trace our branch back to Henry Tibbetts' arrival in Dover NH in the early 17th century. We ended up on Tibbetts Hill in Brookfield NH, my dad was the last Tibbetts born there. The Washington state branch broke off from the Tibbetts Hill branch (as best as I can tell) in the mid 19th century, and came out here to the Issaquah area. I have noticed a number of "enclaves" of Tibbetts families stretching from Main down to your neck of the woods - but haven't really followed any of the linkages - just the one that came out here, since this is where I ended up relocating 30+ years ago.

    Perhaps we can have a Tibbetts "reunion" at one of the AAW symposiums or regional meetings some year!

  2. Hi Tim,
    Good to hear from you. I'm in Maryland as is one of my brothers, David. My other brother, Roger, is outside of Tulsa. The name is very old in New England and fairly common as I'm sure you are aware. And also seems to be relatively common in the Pacific northwest. My paternal grandfather was from W Va. He and my grandmother were divorced on bad terms and my grandmother did all possible erase his memory from the family on her side. I know he had 2 brothers but I haven't been able to find much of anything on any of them. Maybe I need to go back to
    Must be something in the genes that draws us to woodwork! I suppose Malcolm Tibbetts is the most noted. Looking at your avatar and his photo I believe without your beard there would be quite a resemblance.
    Thanks for the reply! If you know of any resources for tracing this family name I would be interested and grateful to be aware of them.

    Thanks again!

    Hi James - my apologies for such a late response. I just noticed your message now! I currently live southeast of Seattle, but am originally from NH. I have a brother named James who still lives there. How about you?

You only need 2 tools in life. If it's supposed to move and doesn't... use WD40. If it moves and shouldn't... use duct tape.
