A Lineage society is an organization that honors a specific heritage or event. Members must prove descent of someone who is part of that event or heritage through family lineage known as genealogical proof standard. Some examples of lineage societies are Daughters of the American Revolution, Children of the Confederacy, Descendants of the Mexican War Veterans, Descendants of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence, Military order of Foreign Wars of the United States, National Society Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims, Order of Descendants of Pirates and Privateers, Order of the Indian Wars of the United States, Register of Infamous and Famous Relatives in American Families, Society of Descendants of Ireland, Sons and Daughters of the Province and Republic of West Florida, and Sons of the American Legion are a few of these types of organizations. There are well over 200 societies you might be linked to through your family tree.
Come join us January 11th at Cooper Memorial Library, Room 108 from 4:30-7:00 pm (presentation will start at 5pm) to learn more about what type of society you might belong to: war, old world, regional, religion, ethnicity, or early settlers.
