Serendipity Sunday - Founders and Patriots of America

This week I came across this publication....

The Order of the Founders and Patriots of America Register 1904

'''The Order of the Founders and Patriots of America''' (OFPA) is a highly restrictive, United States-based, hereditary fraternal organization whose self-declared purpose is to collect and preserve records related to the original American colonists and their descendants, and to promote camaraderie among descendants of original colonists. Its strict bloodline mandates and small size (currently less than 1,000 members), has earned it a reputation as the most exclusive lineage society in the United States."

There are more records here.


  1. This is very interesting. I'm in the middle of a course with the DAR on sources to prove the service of Revolutionary War patriots. This one is not mentioned, but whether approved by DAR or not, it is certainly a good finding aid to help someone locate other sources. I REALLY appreciate the link to other records.

    1. Glad I could help. Tomorrow's post is on Monthly magazines :-)


Leave me a note to tell me you were here! Thanks for visiting.
