Benjamin Franklin’s Family
Volume 2: Descendants of Benjamin1 Franklin
Volume 3: Descendants of Josiah1 Franklin

For decades, Michael has been working to document the family of Dr. Benjamin Franklin. Meticulous research in repositories across the United States and England has created the most well-documented genealogy of the family ever published. Now the first volume is about to head to press.

The Family of Benjamin Franklin is a multi-volume set to be published over the next few years. Volume one containing information on the Franklin family’s ancestry in England was published in 2019.

Volume 2 covers the descendants of Benjamin Franklin the elder, the older brother of Josiah Franklin for whom the Revolutionary War patriot was named. Volume 3 deals with the descendants of Benjamin’s father, Josiah Franklin. for more details on the project and publishing schedule updates, visit
