Welcome to my webpage.My name is Bryan Tinlin, and Iím a bit of a genealogy fanatic.Iíve written down every bit of information Iíve ever found on the above three surnames, and hope to add it all to this site. Please feel free to contact me at the e-mail address listed at the bottom of the page.

New Website: I have set up a new website at I still have much to work on there, but all new information will be entered at that site.For the time being, I will leave this one here with static information (very little updated since January 2005).The new site is a bit spruced up, although Iím still having some formatting problems and have a few more pages to add.It contains all the information I have discovered or that has been sent to me since the last major update in Jan 2005.Although I did not do a lot of research in the last year due to my move and new job, I DID do a lot in 2005, all of which is now available on the new site.I have also replaced much of the Dictionary there with individuals arranged by family.NEW: information on the Tinlin, Tinline and Tinling DNA study finally posted!!Go HERE.

The ďDictionaryĒ is a sort of master list of all people I have found with the surname Tinlin/e/g in alphabetical order by first name. I started this dictionary to make it easier to piece the puzzle all together, but if anything is unclear, please let me know.†† It is really a collaborative work, and I want to thank everyone who has sent me material to add to it, and all those whose information I have gathered from the Internet.I have tried to document the source of each individual piece of information.

aware of what information I have.
