I called this web site "Balchipedia" because it's intended to function in very much the same way as "Wikipedia". Wikipedia is an online encylopedia that allows all of its users the ability to change, update and even add new information. With Balchipedia I hope that I can get other people to help me contribute to this web site. My Goal for this web site is to collect as much historical information concerning the Balch family as I can. One person alone has limitations on their time, energy and information but with multiple people contributing we can add a huge amount of Balch family history to this site. Please sign up and contribute if you have valuable family information to contribute.
The Balch family, in America, has its origins with two John Balches that arrived in America in the 1600's. There is the John of Massachusetts and the John who settled in Maryland about 1658. I have information, about some individuals in each Balch family, and hope to further clarify their stories. Towards that goal I have been researching various Balches that I stumble across in my searchings on the internet.
As I do more research I would like to see more people joining this web site and contributing to the information here. If you have any amount of Balch history or genealogy information please join by either hitting the link on the side navigation bar or the link listed below under Important Links. Together we can make this web site truly amazing!
