About the Maryland Joyce Project
The current format of the Joyce Family Tree of Maryland emerged from genealogical research commissioned by Severn & Catharine Joyce of Toledo, Ohio.
The goal of the research project was to establish the first Joyce to have settled in Maryland, his provenance, and the date of his arrival.
After several months of research and an additional generation discovered in Maryland---going back to the late 1600s---no extant document could establish a direct link to a Joyce in Ireland or England.
Before continuing with the genealogical research to find that link, it was decided that the accumulated records should first be organized into this electronic family tree.
A vast collection of records compiled by Temple Nash Joyce in the early 1960s served as the foundation for the genealogical research done by A. R. Eguiguren, who also designed and produced this electronic family tree, with funding from Severn and Catharine Joyce.
Structure of The Site
Each family member with the Joyce surname (at birth) has an individual page. Spouses, children, and descendents with a different surname are mentioned in the same page.
Individuals for whom photographs are available have active links under the "Photo" symbol on the top part of their pages.
To find individuals or photographs quickly, go to the Project's Index page.
