First Family Lineage
The MCHGS sponsors five different lineage societies. The first being First Families of Miami County. The requirements for this society are that the applicant must be a member of the MCHGS and must prove direct descent from an ancestor who first resided in Miami County, Ohio, on or before December 31, 1830.
Lineage Society awards are made each November at the Annual Membership Meeting. Please fill out a Lineage Application. The deadline for submissions is September 1. Only one lineage society pin will be issued to each approved member for any given MCHGS lineage society. An applicant may request to have all qualifying ancestors’ names (newly approved and previously approved) included on his/her new certificate for a given lineage society, assuming that there is room on the form for them all. Otherwise, only the name(s) of the newly approved ancestors will be included. Replacement certificates or pins may be purchased for a $4.00 fee each, plus postage. Please select Application Guidelines & Rules to view the necessary protocols and instructions.
