Dear Member of the Underhill Family:
As a member of the Underhill family and of the Underhill Society of America (USofA), your direct connection to the family’s history and genealogy is through your Underhill Society. The Underhill name can be found in many important aspects of North American history, and our forebearers were located and influential throughout the many regions of the United States and Canada.
The Underhill Society of America supports important individual initiatives and long-term projects which ensure the collection and preservation of Underhill family histories and memorabilia, as well as the tracing of Underhill family genealogies. Your membership in the Society and your support for the Annual Fund Drive make this work possible.
Projects include the Underhill Archives, located in Oyster Bay, NY, which feature unique documents, personal written family histories, and Underhill artifacts. Since last year, important Underhill portraits and scrapbooks have been added to the Archives. The Archives are managed by a professional archivist and are available for review by Underhill family members and by external researchers. Additionally, the Society publishes a newsletter, The News & Views, and an annual educational publication, The Bulletin, which features articles about historic events and/or Underhill family members.
The Society also supports the work of two genealogists, Rob Underhill and Susan McMahon, who are tracing and cataloging the many branches of the Underhill family tree. This work is especially important as they continue the genealogical research to complete the 9th and 10th volumes of the Underhill Family Genealogy which will be the most comprehensive and authoritative Underhill genealogy available. Its publication is tentatively planned for 2024-25. The Board of the Society is currently considering publishing options for this important work.
The Board of the Underhill Society asks for your donation to the Annual Fund Drive to support the work on Volumes 9 and 10 of the Underhill Family Genealogy, to maintain and expand the Underhill Archives, and to release the Society’s publications.
Donations can be made directly by check, or by electronic means through PayPal or credit card. Instructions are attached. Be assured that 100% of your donation will go to support the work of your Underhill Society of America.
Thank you for your support.
Treasurer, Underhill Society of America
