Family Reunions

Posted on May 11, 2011 at 9:45 PM

Family reunion season is almost upon us!  Family reunions are usually a time of fellowship, catching-up, good food, hugs and kisses, family photos, and even a long lost relative or two.

 

Family reunions have been taking place for many, many years.  I have news articles of family reunions in the 1880s.  My Fisher and Norris lines have always been big on family reunions. 

In the photo above, Sarah Belle (Swope) Fisher is surrounded by her children and their spouses in 1936.  The location is not known for certain, but it could possibly be at Paradise Furnace, which is now part of the Trough Creek State Park.

 

If you and your family will be having a family reunion that you would like to open up to other "long lost relatives" or very distant cousins, please consider posting it on the Calendar.  Any member can add an event or family reunion to the calendar.  You can provide details about the event, where it will take place, and when.  You can even add a map to show people how to get there!

 

Happy Family Reunion Season!
