52 Ancestors – Week 12 – Membership

This is an interesting prompt for Week 12. When I see membership, my first thought goes to country clubs. I have no idea why but it does. My family has never been a member of a country club. So I started thinking a bit more about organizations my family belonged to.

My Dad is a member of the Elks and Knights of Columbus.

My Grandpa was an Elk and a Mason. I remember my grandma saying she was president of the Eastern Star. I know my mom and her siblings were part of the 4H.

Me I have chosen to join lineage societies. It lets me bring my love of genealogy to life and honor those who have gone before.

I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and Descendants of Early American Farmers.

I am working on an application for the National Society Daughters of the Union. I am thinking of honoring my 2X great grandmother Sarah Larkin Beardsley by joining the Descendants of Early First Responders. Someday I will finish dotting all the i’s and crossing the t’s to join the Associated Daughters of Early American Witches.

I am also thinking of becoming a member of the Local Quilt Guild and I need to see if there is a Genealogy Society to join here. For me it is a great way to make friends locally.

So are you a member of any society or group?
