While researching your family history, you may wonder what an acronym in your ancestors’ records or a symbol on their tombstone signifies.
It’s possible that your ancestor was a member of a fraternal organization. While the practices and
ceremonies of these types of organizations are sometimes secretive, you will find that many people will identify themselves in some way that they are a member
of an exclusive organization. These membership organizations have been around throughout
history and were especially popular in the U.S. during the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Al will help us to out how to discover what groups/societies our family members may have been involved.
