United States of America

You can obtain help with your family history research from the following types of societies:

  • Historical and genealogical societies
  • Lineage and hereditary societies
  • Family associations
  • Fraternal organizations

Contents

Historical and Genealogical Societies

More than 9,000 historical and genealogical societies may have records and services to help you with your research. Societies have been organized in all states and most counties. They generally collect historical documents of local interest, publish periodicals, and have special projects and indexes. Because of the excellent help they can provide, you should contact the societies near you and near the areas where your ancestors lived. You may find it helpful to join one of these societies and support their efforts. Your local public library may have guides to help you locate these organizations, including:

  • Meyer's Directory of Genealogical Societies in the USA and Canada [1]
  • Directory of Historical Organizations in the United States and Canada [2]

The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) is an umbrella organization of over 450 genealogical societies. FGS does not do genealogical research. Their business office can identify local genealogical societies and supply their addresses and telephone numbers.

FamilySearch™

http://www.familysearch.org/eng/default.asp

FamilySearch is a collection of computer files containing several million names. FamilySearch is a good place to begin your research. Some of the records come from compiled sources; some have been automated from original sources.




Lineage and Hereditary Societies

Soon after the American Revolution, prominent citizens began to form exclusive social organizations and join hereditary and patriotic societies. Many societies were organized in the late 1880s and 1890s when membership in these organizations became very popular.

These societies are generally involved in educational, cultural, social, and other programs to preserve the documents and memory of the past. They often maintain libraries and museums that can help you in your research. Most publish a periodical or newsletter, such as the Daughters of the American Revolution Magazine.

One of your ancestors or relatives may have submitted application papers containing his pedigree in order to join a lineage society. These records often include multi-generation pedigrees and information from family Bibles, death records, or military documents. They may also lead you to someone else interested in your family. Unfortunately, these papers have not always been carefully documented, but they can provide excellent clues for further research. Some societies allow only members to use their records.

The Family History Library has over 2,000 microfilms and numerous books of society records. These include application papers, yearbooks, ancestor rolls, membership rosters, and publications of the societies. For example, the library has microfilm copies of a card index and 100,000 applications for membership in:

  • Sons of the American Revolution. Membership Information, 1776-1996 [3]

The library also has major collections from the following societies:

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is the largest and most popular lineage society in the United States. It has had over 188,000 members and several chapters in each state. This society actively encourages members to locate and transcribe records useful to genealogists. An index to the Revolutionary ancestors of DAR applicants is:

  • Daughters of the American Revolution, Millennial Administration. DAR Patriot Index [4]

Addresses, membership requirements, and information about most lineage and hereditary societies are in:

  • Register of U.S. Lineage Societies [5] This register gives call numbers and describes many of the society records available at the Family History Library.
  • The Hereditary Register of the United States of America[6]

Web Sites - Lineage and Heredity Societies

National Huguenot Society


Family Associations

Many family organizations are gathering information about their ancestors and descendants. Some organizations are gathering information about all individuals with a particular surname. Family histories, newsletters, family group records, and other information gathered by family organizations are described on the Genealogy page. The Family Registry and the Ancestral File (also on the “Genealogy” page) can help you locate active associations. Some researchers have located family organizations and other researchers by posting queries on the Internet or by searching the membership directories of online computer genealogy groups. Also helpful is:

  • Directory of Family Associations [7]

Fraternal Organizations

Your ancestor or relative may have belonged to an association, lodge, or secret society whose membership is based on common interests, religion, or ethnicity. Many sources, such as local histories, biographies, obituaries, tombstones, family records, and artifacts may give you clues that an ancestor belonged to a fraternal society. Examples of these societies include:

These societies were involved in political, social, and financial activities. Around 1900, for example, there were over 2,000,000 members involved in fraternal insurance programs.

For more information about fraternal societies, see:

  • Fraternal Organizations[8]

The records of fraternal organizations may exist in a society or business archive. Some genealogical information may be obtained through correspondence. Family History Library has histories of fraternal societies but very few records. In the Family History Library Catalog, find:

Most information about fraternal organizations in the Author/Title Search under the organization name.

Some organization histories are in the Place Search under the locality, then topics such as SOCIETIES, GENEALOGY, HISTORY, OCCUPATIONS, MINORITIES, and PUBLIC RECORDS.

Guide to Societies and Associations

Current addresses, functions, and membership requirements of fraternal, ethnic, veteran, hereditary, patriotic, and other associations can be found in the:

  • Encyclopedia of Associations [9] Section twelve, “Veterans', Hereditary, and Patriotic Organizations” is especially useful for genealogists.

Locating Society Records in the Family History Library Catalog

Records of these societies are usually described in the Author/Title Search of the Family History Library Catalog under the name of the society. They are also listed in the Place Search under one of the following:

UNITED STATES - SOCIETIES
[STATE] - SOCIETIES
[STATE], [COUNTY] - SOCIETIES
UNITED STATES - GENEALOGY
[STATE] - GENEALOGY
[STATE], [COUNTY] - GENEALOGY

Some records gathered by societies are listed in the Locality Search under the type of record. For example, cemetery transcripts gathered by a local genealogical society are listed in the catalog under the

[STATE], [COUNTY] - CEMETERIES.

Lists and guides that describe the collections of societies are listed in the Place Search of the Family History Library Catalog under:

[STATE] - ARCHIVES AND LIBRARIES - INVENTORIES, REGISTERS, CATALOGS
[STATE], [COUNTY] - ARCHIVES AND LIBRARIES - INVENTORIES, REGISTERS, CATALOGS
[STATE], [COUNTY], [TOWN] - ARCHIVES AND LIBRARIES - INVENTORIES, REGISTERS, CATALOGS

You can also find information about some societies under the name of the organization in the Subject Search of the Family History Library Catalog.
