Lineage Week is Coming!

Every year, members of many national lineage groups meet in Washington DC for Lineage Week.  It is actually 11 or so days of meetings, including breakfasts, luncheons, teas and banquets.  We meet many of our dear friends from across the US (and Canada) and talk about all the wonderful things the various societies do over the year.  And, we start planning for the next year.  My schedule is fairly non-stop from when I arrive Monday afternoon until I leave Sunday morning.  This year, I will be attending events for:
  • Women Descendants of Ancient & Honorable Artillery Company (banquet) 
  • National Society Children of the American Colonists (breakfast)
  • National Society Daughters of the American Colonists (meeting and banquet)
  • Order of the First Families of New Hampshire (tea)
  • Order of the First Families of Maine (tea)
  • National Society Daughters of Founders and Patriots (meeting, luncheons and banquet)
  • Descendants of Sheriffs and Constables (tea)
  • National Society Children of the American Revolution (meetings)
  • Guild of Colonial Artisans and Tradesmen (tea)
  • National Society New England Women (breakfast)
  • Sons and Daughters of Colonial and Antebellum Bench and Bar (banquet)
  • Sons and Daughters of Antebellum Planters (banquet)
  • Associated Daughters of Early American Witches (breakfast)
  • Descendants of Colonial Clergy (banquet)
Luckily, some of these are joint meetings, but I will still be eating all week!  And this is only about half of all lineage groups that meet - many overlap and we have to pick and choose which ones to attend.  I am a member of all the groups listed above and an officer or chairman of most of them, so those are the ones I attend.
I will try to update the blog during the week with all of our festivities.

  1. Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
