Welcome to the Thames-Tims Genealogy Website. If you're a first-time visitor, we're glad you found us. And if you're a regular, welcome back.

Please be sure to visit the Forums where you can communicate with other members. While you may not have a question of your own, please sure to visit; you might just be holding that missing link someone else has long been searching for! Your login info for the Forums is the same as what you use to login to the website.

The purposes of this website are to provide a central place to collect research regarding our families and to further the research into our family lines. We're working to develop an extensive digital library of data and documents, and our database of lineages has well over 1,300 people in it so far - connecting together whenever common ancestors occur.;

How You Can Help

Any additions, leads, corrections, photos or documents are welcomed. On every individual ancestor's page, you will see a Suggest tab; you can use this to notify us of corrections or additions you would like to contribute regarding an ancestor already in the Tree. You can also make suggestions by using 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of this page.

If you would like to submit your Tims/Timms/Thames etc. direct lineage by email by using the Other options for submitting your lineage for addition to the Tree (and/or for adding to the general website collection) are sending digital files via email or snail mail. In addition, you can use the Contact link above to tell us about information or people you can add to the Tree.

Things to Know

Whenever an image, document, or other resource can be linked to an individual in the Tree, we have done so. But note, our site has many submitted photos, documents, and information for ancestors who are not currently part of the Tree (though we are working now to remedy that), and therefore their information is not accessible via the Search option. To glean information about ancestors who are not in the Tree, you can browse the supplementary collections, such as Cemeteries, Headstones, and Photos. If you spot an item that can be linked to someone in the Tree, please let us know.
DNA Project

The Thames Family DNA Project has had several successes since its inception. Most notably, the Project has put to bed the nagging question of whether or not Amos Tims b. 1684 was the father of Thomas Thames d. 1758. Based upon the results, we can now definitively say that the two men were not related, period. The Project needs more Tims and Timms participants so that more can be learned about those two families. To view the Project, see the DNA Project home page

Living Individuals

For security and privacy reasons, this website contains no dates and places of birth or addresses for individuals believed to be living.

Data Sources

Most of the family tree data is from (a) recollections and records of immediate family, (b) original sources such as census records, marriage, birth and death records, or (c) published family trees of other individuals. The current family tree database is a collection of past and present TTFA members' lineages, and where sources were noted on the individual lineages, they have been summarized in the Source notations. This site includes source references for most items of data, citing either another researcher or an original source.


Many thanks to all the researchers who have submitted digital images and materials for the site, and a most gracious thank you to owners of other websites who have allowed our researchers to glean information from their sites to contribute. We will not use information without an owner's permission!
