The Evolution of Hereditary Organizations and Lineage Societies in the United States: Why They Formed, How They Are Perceived, and Their Contributions to Historical and Genealogical Research.

Project: Research

Project Details


This study concerns the perceptions of heritage organizations and lineage societies and the reliability of the genealogy research for those groups. As part of this research, I am conducting a survey plus additional oral history interviews with people involved with these organizations and persons who are not. The study aims to inform a Ph.D. project on insight into perceptions of these organizations, if they contribute to historical preservation or knowledge, and the reliability of genealogical research used for membership.
