Question: When I was at NEHGS last week I saw a brochure in the lunch room about a descendants group for Textile workers. I had thought I would take a copy, but forgot to after getting involved in a lengthy conversation. Can you tell me what the organization is?
Answer: The brochure was still down stairs and I would be glad to mail it to you. The organization is The National Society of Descendants of Textile Workers of America, Inc. This organization was founded in 2007 "for the purpose of honoring our ancestors who participated in the American Industrial Revolution as Textile Workers." The website for this organization is www.textileworker.com and their mailing address is NSDTWA, 218 Green Hollow Rd., Danielson, CT 06239. They can also be reached by email at the address of firstname.lastname@example.org
