Family Associations

The full title of this book is “Directory of Family Associations” by Elizabeth Petty Bentley. (Kris, is your husband related?) This book contains family associations throughout the United States.

It includes Family Associations, Reunion Committees, One-Name Societies, Surname Exchanges, and Family Newspapers. This book was published in 1991, so a lot of the content is probably outdated, however, I thought you could look up your surnames in this book and see if it is still an active association, etc.

After doing this, you could do a Google Search for your “Surname plus Family Association” to see if there is an association listed on the internet.  For example, I looked in the book for the Turrentine family association. There is a Turrentine Family Newsletter from a Jerry Turrentine in Nashville, Tn. Next, i did the Google Search for “Turrentine Family Association,” and found the association online and on this website is a link to a Turrentine Newsletter. You can email the lady in charge, and she will email the newsletter. They also include information on reunions, etc. Here is the link to this association:  turrentinenews.tripod.com/


1. Look up your surnames in this book at the front of the room.

2. Google search for a family association.  I would totally love to hear what you find.


May the folks be with you!!
