Society Saturday - New England Women in Illinois

 The three Colonies (chapters) of New England Women in Illinois had a joint meeting to visit with our President General, Linda Brown Jones.  Mrs. Jones told us about the current state of the Society.

The National Society of New England Women is a National Lineage Society with over 1000 members in 45 Colonies around the country.  Membership requires a lineal ancestor who was born in New England prior to the Revolutionary War.  They have several charities, including Kurn Hattin school in Vermont, Clarke School for the Deaf, and the Soldiers Sailors and Airmen Club in New York.
