the Porter Family Organization
The primary purpose of The Porter Family Organization is to allow family members
and other persons interested in Porter genealogy to share data, organize
genealogical research efforts and assign tasks to avoid duplication of
effort. The organization is also dedicated to genealogical
education and research. Some of the projects envisioned at this time include
but are not limited to the following:
Educate organization members how to use the Internet and this website for genealogical research.
Educate and motivate organization members to develop their own family history and to locate family hsitories of their ancestors.
Assist families to set up and utilize family Web sites.
Use donations to further organization purposes and to carry out
education, research and service projects.
No moneys collected will be used for the personal benefit of any individual.
The Porter Family Organization was established in 1988 with some donations and help from
a professional genealogical research specialist. Some of the moneys collected
were used for printing and mailing and to publish the Joseph Porter book. The organization then became inactive.
This internet project is designed to revitalize the organization by utilizing
state of the art communications systems and research programs.
The current Family Officers are comprised of..
Steve Porter (Family President)

The purpose of the board is to oversee the organization and move it forward in meeting the purposes outlined above.
