Sons of the American Revolution The Sons of the American Revolution is a male lineage society that seeks to maintain and expand the meaning of patriotism, respect for our national symbols, the value of American citizenship, and the unifying force of “e pluribus unum” that was created from the people of many nations — one nation and one people.
Hereditary Order of the Families of Presidents and First Ladies of America This organization’s membership is comprised of lineal and collateral descendants of one or more President’s or First Ladies. Since John and Priscilla were 2nd-great-grandparents to President John Adams, and 3rd-great-grandparents to President John Quincy Adams, then by definition all members of the Alden Kindred of America are cousins to some degree of those two presidents, and are therefore eligible for membership in the HOFPFLA.
National Society of the Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims The Society was organized on December 21, 1908, by Dr. Thomas W. Bicknell. Dr. Bicknell applied the term Pilgrim broadly to all those who arrived in the American colonies prior to 1700 as “emigrants from restricted rights and privileges to a land of large opportunities and larger freedom.” Currently about 1500 members. State chapters.
