Lineage Societies
Provided by Ted Bainbridge, Ph.D.

If you can trace one of your ancestral lines far enough back in time, and if you have acceptable proof, you might be able to join a lineage society.  Here are links to the most popular ones.  (You can find links to others by doing internet searches for descriptive words.)  Links below include those for the organization’s national headquarters web page, their Pennsylvania page, pages for selected local components, locating individual chapters, information about joining, and contacting the organization.
