Do you have a connection to the Chamberlin or Chamberlain family? 

I am running a Chamberlin/Chamberlain name study and would love for your help in connecting families, cleaning up Notable ancestor profiles, and meeting other Chamberlin/Chamberlain descendants. 

Please reply here if you're interested or comment below if you have any questions.

I have Chamberlain / Chamberlaine ancestors in England.  Am happy to place the name study category or whatever on the profiles as I create them.  Just tell me what to put.

Jim Chamberlin doesn't have a profile yet, but he's listed on the British Columbia Aviation Figures page.

My proper maiden name is Chamberlain (it's a long story) so I'm interested! I think my line goes up into the northeast (NY, MA, NJ) but I haven't done much research yet.

Hi Katie!

I would be so happy to have your help and to work with you on your Chamberlain connection.

My grandmother is a Chamberlin whose family traces back to Vermont and Massachusetts and I’ve really enjoyed connecting it together.

Currently I’m just working on adding Chamberlins to WikiTree, adding them to the project and attempting to build in famous Chamberlins.

I’ll add you to the project. Please feel free to join in where you can. I’ll be expanding the categories soon I think to further break the project down a bit. :)

Not sure if you are still looking but I would be happy to help.
Hi Andrea,

I’m so sorry for the tardy reply  Life got pretty wild for a while there!

In my one name study I’m looking to gather Chamberlin/Chamberlain lines together. We can work on connecting Chamberlins together, add famous Chamberlins etc. Essentially research the surname as best we can to help fellow researchers with their Chamberlin work. I’d love to have you on board if you’re still interested.
Hi Robin, no worries at all, I think we are all thrown off right now!  I've found some Chamberlin/lain's that don't seem to be on Wiki tree so it would be nice to add them in.  I also happened across this years Chamberlin family reunion I attended as a child. Sorry, got excited I guess!

Hi Robin,

I'd like to join the Chamberlain one-name study. My gg-grandfather was [[Chamberlain-2756|William J Chamberlain]] b appx 1809 in New Hampshire, had moved south to Galveston TX by 1828, lived in Washington Co TX in 1841 then moved to Louisiana, where he married a woman named "Anne" in 1842. In the next 10 years they had five children in Louisiana, but in 1855 the family moved back to Texas. In 1856 the family's last child was born in Leon Co. TX. I've not been able to find any records of the time he was in Louisiana. No clues as to Anne was. I know from the 1860 census that she was born in 1818 in St. John New Brunswick Canada. I've worked on this brick wall for years without any success.

 Wondering if you still need help ?  My Chamberlin ancestors came from Massachuttes to help Philomen Wright build mills and helped settle the Chelsea area of Ottawa-Hull in the early 1800's. 

Thanks, Jennifer
