Thayer Families Association

Welcome to our all new TFA Website!

We invite you to browse the site’s new and enhanced features. We have nearly 25 years of digitized newsletters and are adding a Forum and Photo Archives section along with some other tweaks as we transition to this new system that will enable a younger generation to assume responsibilitry for its operation. Please note our new website URL is https://thayerfamilies.org which is more appropriate for our mission as a family organization. The former https://thayerfamilies.com will continue to forward to the new address for awhile but please change your bookmark and use https://thayerfamilies.org from now on.
 
The Guestbook from the old site is not currently functional and may never be. Plese use the link below to our Facebook site. Genealogical questions or comments may be made to our Historian/Genealogist via eMail or her Facebook site.
 
With members in 40 U.S. states plus Canada, Ireland and Panama, the Thayer Families Association welcomes all who have an interest in Thayer families, including all variant spellings.  Membership details can be found here.

Please check out what we have to offer. We hope you will return to see the additional features as we go forward.

If you have suggestions or comments, please contact info@thayerfamilies.org

Letters from Iraq
St. Louis Symphony Orchestra’s Vice President for Education and Community Partnerships, Marc Thayer, just returned to northern Iraq for 3 weeks where he coached music students in an institute sponsored by American Voices. This organization sets up temporary teaching institutes in areas of conflict. In this letter, he writes from the ancient city of Suleimanya.
 
Schooner C. A. Thayer
The C. A. Thayer is a wooden-hulled, three masted schooner with a long and colorful history. The last of her kind afloat on the West coast, the C. A. Thayer has hauled lumber, fish, coal, and war materials. She has survived 2 near sinkings and at nearly 100 years old requires much work to prevent her loss to wood rot.
