This prestigious international one name family history society was founded in 1970 and brings you a wealth of information about the huge worldwide Dalton family. Please use the links on the left and above to navigate around the site. Here you will find our monthly newsletter Daltons in History, details about our projects and activities, and gain access to our extensive databank and index built up over many years.
