National Society Colonial Dames 17th Century

National Society Colonial Dames 17th Century An organization of women who are lineal descendants of an ancestor who lived and served prior to 1701 in one of the Original Colonies of the United States.
(11)

The National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century unites over 9,000 members in a communion based on their interest in American history, their love and respect for this nation and a mutual desire to work together in harmonious fellowship to achieve the goals of the Society. It is one of the few societies of today which has heraldry at the core of its objectives and additionally holds one of the largest collections of Coats of Arms in the country. Moreover, compared to other lineage societies, the National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century requires that potential applicants must be able to prove their ancestry in the country prior to 1701.

Florida State President Sue Bratton was our guest at Timucua Chapter's March meeting.
The Arkansas State Society was able to have our state conference in-person and by Zoom. And we were so blessed to have PG Nan Ackerman with us. Thanks to outgoing state president Linda Kay Vandenberg White for a great conference and a great two years. Best wishes to incoming president Pat McLemore and her new board.
Wow!! Another member told me to open the Review we received yesterday and turn to page 68. I was delighted to see the article complete with pictures on William Marshall my 24th great grandfather. I have recently been working my lines from my gateway ancestor Jane Deighton and found him. What fun to read and share this article. Thanks
Advice please. I joined the society through my ancestor Ralph Leftwich. Since then, he has been red-lined. His son, Thomas is listed as a proven ancestor and it is through his line that I descend, as well. May I use only my approved application for a supplemental on Thomas. There is a record copy but I was told it was too old. Do I need to submit all the information through Thomas again? If I can use my original application, how do I properly cite it?
Timucua Chapter welcomed 5 new members at our meeting on Nov 7th. We also held a Memorial Service and recognized our Veterans. It was nice to finally meet in person for the first time since January.
Is there a listing of books acceptable on the National site? I can't find a listing. Thanks.
Proclamation designating October as Colonial Heritage Month was signed by Wildwood, FL Mayor Ed Wolf at the City Council meeting on Monday. Nice to have been publicly recognized for the many years that he has signed this proclamation for Timucua Chapter.
Anyone else having problems getting on the website. Been trying for hours.....
Please help me congratulate the Samoset Chapter Outstanding Junior, Miss Jenny Hemphill!!!!!!
Where are we sending applications for new members? Thanks
Is anyone else having issues with the new supplemental form? When I type my N# at top right it automaticly goes to the line for the Registrar. When I type in the Registrar's N# it changes it at top right to the Registrar's N#. Hope this is an easy fix?
