Due to the immense interest many have shown in organizing a HOSMER FAMILY SOCIETY, I would like to suggest we set about making it a reality.
The sharing of information in a format of newsletters, meetings, trips, lectures, ideas, visits, films, histories and documentation, would benefit those of us who care to learn more of our heritage.
Having a slate of officers and membership and being fully responsible to that membership through the participation of hundreds of HOSMER descendants worldwide, would provide us an opportunity to acquaint ourselves with not only our families, but develop a bond of friendship amongst those whose ancestors arrived on our shore so many years hence and/or still reside in the land of our forefathers.
For several years I have received numerous inquires into the possibility of organizing a HOSMER SOCIETY. What better time than now? I therefore challenge each of you to commit to this endeavor if you feel as many do...the preservation of our heritage is worthy of our time and engery.
Can we not come together and grow in our knowledge through this means?
May I ask you to share your thougths with others by posting online for all to see the pro's and con's of such an idea.
Many thousands of family socities exist, why not the ancient name of HOSMER/OSMER?
