Who We Are
Founded in 1927 by Anne Colman Moody, The Sons and Daughters of the First Settlers of Newbury is a genealogical society intent on the preservation of the history of Old Newbury and the pioneer families that created our Yankee community.
The Sons and daughters of the First Settlers of Newbury is a lineal society. To be eligible to join the organization, you must establish that you are a direct descendant from a First Settler of Newbury prior to 1700.
The list of First Settlers can be found here.
As a volunteer organization, we are always looking for members who wish to share their energy, ideas, and research through:
* Articles for The Descend-O-Gram
* Our committee structure (participating directly, or through correspondence)
* Adding historic texts and articles to our library collection
* Suggesting speakers for the Annual Meeting (held on a Saturday in mid-August each year)
