About the James Family Archives


The James Family Archives (“J.F.A.”) is a genealogical repository of information and research contributed by family historians and genealogists devoted to the preservation of the history of the families descending from David James (circa 1660-1739) and Margaret Jane Mortimer; and, Margaret James and Samuel Miles of Llandegley and Glascwm Parishes in Radnorshire, Wales who arrived in Pennsylvania between 1682 and 1684.


The J.F.A. Began its work in 1984 in Folsom, California. The Archives represents the accumulation of nearly forty years of research from members of the family all over the United States and around the world and continues with the work originally begun by the late Carol Ina James (1943-2009). Below is a list of the Archives’ financial sponsors, the active and past family historians, and those who have contributed their valuable time and skills to the research and preservation of our James family’s history.
