Printouts of the genealogy of Blaisdell and 6,200 other surnames are available of your family from the Blaisdell Family National Association (BFNA) at cost plus postage for a BFNA Basic Member and for the general public.
These are not your typical pedigree charts or family group sheets (though these are available, if you want them). These are narratives, more like a book. All the cousins in a single generation are listed together in a single chapter. The next generation back is listed in another chapter.
Where source documentation is available, you can elect to (1) eliminate it for a cleaner printout, or (2) only print the title of the document, or (3) full detailed documentation and additional information.
Many of the printouts are available going back 14 generations to Ralph Blaisdell, who came to America in 1635, and another six generations back in England to Richard Blesedale, born 1423. That’s twenty generations!

Various Spellings of Blaisdell
The Association has documented 38 different spellings of the family’s surname. Blaisdell, Blasdel, Blasdell, Bleasdale, Bleasdell, Blasdale and Blazo are the most common in North America. Accuracy and uniformity of spelling were evidently not concerns among our forebears.
Genealogy printouts are a great gift for children. Every student has a family history assignment some time. It would be a nice gift for newlyweds. Share your heritage and pass it on.
The Association’s hand-written or typed genealogical record keeping since 1935 changed to the computer in 1991, making it easier to store and retrieve genealogical and historical data. Over 70,000 Blaisdell descendants and related families are tied together in the lineage-linked popular PAF data base. Printouts are available for over 27,500 families…and with more being added almost every day!
Notes are maintained on nearly 20,000 family members on the computer with information relating to: vocation, military (including Revolutionary War service notes, useful for DAR / SAR membership), education, residence, organizations, census data, cause of death, source of information, data conflicts, correspondents, etc. and date of last revision. Black/white and color photos, full obituaries and biographical information are being added.
Printouts are available of existing information. We ask you to review, verify, and add new information (births, marriages, deaths, weddings, anniversaries, obituaries, photos) so that we may keep our records current and share it with other family members. These printouts frequently run 80-100 pages (some over 500) in a standard format, known as the New England Historic Genealogical Society’s Register format.
This format translates boring dates, places, and notes into a book format with an index of all persons in the book. Standard package includes an "ahnentafel chart" (ancestor table) and pedigree chart. Other formats are available.
We ask for a suggested minimum donation to cover
the cost of maintenance, paper, ink, handling and mailing costs.

Two publications have documented the Blaisdell family genealogy and history:
(1) ‘Genealogical Outline: Early Generations of Blaisdells in America’ (1983) with the first six generations from Ralph Blaisdell and the early generations of eleven other Blaisdell families in U.S. (Currently out of print.)
(2) 'Genealogical Outline: 7th, 8th, and 9th Generations from Ralph Blaisdell.’ (1987).
(a limited supply is available at $15 plus postage.)
These genealogical outlines are fully indexed.
For those who can not afford a printout of one’s ancestral chart, the Association will send one at no cost as long as we have the funds to do so. The Association accepts donations to the BFNA Endowment Fund, PO Box 444, Harrison, OH 45030, enabling us to help those with more limited resources.
