1:00 pm Program: Lineage Societies - a Panel Discussion by OGS members
Lineage societies, such as the Daughters of the American Revolution, The Mayflower Society, and The Huguenot Society, to name a few, are for people who are direct descendants of people who meet the criteria for the society. OGS members will share why they joined a lineage society and the process to join which can be different for each society. They will also offer tips for anyone thinking about joining one.
