Last week’s survey asked about lineage societies. 56% of respondents are eligible for membership in a lineage society, but have not yet joined. Only 3% are members of a lineage society based on an ancestor's occupation (e.g., Flagon and Trencher). Whether eligible or not, 15% of respondents are not interested in lineage societies. The full results are:

  • 56%, I am eligible to be a member of a lineage society, but have not yet joined.
  • 25%, I am a member of a lineage society based on an ancestor's military service (e.g., DAR, Society of Colinial Wars).
  • 16%, I am a member of a lineage society based on an ancestor's immigration (e.g., Society of Mayflower Descendants, Piscataqua Pioneers).
  • 15%, Whether I am eligible or not, I am not interested in lineage societies.
  • 10%, I am not eligible for any lineage societies of which I am aware.
  • 10%, I am a member of a lineage society based on other criteria.
  • 9%, I am a member of a lineage society based on descent from a single ancestor (e.g., Order of the Crown of Charlemagne in the USA).
  • 5%, I am a member of a lineage society based on an ancestor's ethnic heritage (e.g., St. Andrew's Society, North American Manx Association).
  • 3%, I am a member of a lineage society based on an ancestor's occupation (e.g., Flagon and Trencher).

This week’s survey is for those with ancestors in the Mountain Plains states. Take the survey now!
