Welcome To The Duttons of New England Genealogy Website

The majority of Duttons who came to America from Europe, mainly England, arrived in the Northeast. Some made roots in and around where they landed in Pennsylvania or Massachusetts, while others moved on farther Northeast and to other destinations. The Duttons settled in their new homes and became farmers as that is what most were before immigrating here.

Vermont is where my father was born and raised, and also where I spent the majority of my childhood growing up until I was 12. I missed the slow paced life and going to visit relatives I had never seen before. Looking at them (probably more like staring) to see if they looked anything like me or my dad. I remember seeing my dads brother for the first time. I looked for the longest time but I didn't see "it." Where was the resemblance other than they were both short. I guess wondering who my family was and where they came from started at a fairly early age. I was the inquisitive kid always asking "why", always wanting to know more. It drove my mother crazy, but as an adult (especially one who is into genealogy) it has paid off!

There are many relatives scattered across New England and beyond, but it's always great discovering even more! My main goal with this website is to, of course, meet new relatives no matter how far down the line they may be, but to also share information, photos, documents, etc., so that everyone has the most accurate information possible. As with anyone into genealogy, this website is always a work in progress!
