Dear Family Member

A family organization has been created that includes the descendents of Erastus Bingham and Lucinda Gates. The family organization has been working on several projects the past year. We have moved the Bingham Fort Monument located in Ogden, Utah to the actual Bingham Fort site. Dedication of the monument is scheduled for this spring. We have completed the documentary on the life of Erastus and Lucinda Bingham. We have converted 5 family history books to computer. We have registered our internet domain name for the family organization and created a website at the following address http://www.ourfamiliesroots.org.

Our mission as a family organization is to:

1. Develop stronger relationships between family members through reunions and other activities.
2. Make it easier, quicker and less expensive to share information between family members.
3. Gather all family information into one central location to help in the prevention of duplicated research.
4. Facilitate and discuss areas of family research.
5. Locate all family members both living and deceased.
6. Provide services that will benefit family members both physically and spiritually.

Here are some of the services and products offered through the family organization to all registered family members. Family dues are $25.00 annually.
