In Honor Of
Frances (Peg) Stein
Inspired by the stories that her grandparents and parents told her about her heritage, Peg Stein (my mother) began her genealogical research with a passion in the early 1960s. She corresponded with fellow descendants through handwritten letters and completed research by buying books and visiting libraries, all before computers.
One of my most vivid memories of my youth is the piles of paper and mounds of books that covered our dining room table when my brothers and I were growing up. The only times that we were able to eat in the dining room without her research filling the table was at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. When we went on vacation, it was not unusual for the family to visit cemeteries and the sites of old estates to complete research on our ancestors.
She was also extremely proud of the fact that every male member of our family since the Revolutionary War, through my generation, was a member of the military. Her love of history and her dedication to keeping her proud lineage alive for future generations continued until she passed in 2006.
Mom was a proud member of the following organizations:
National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century -Organizing President of the Roger Montfort Taney Chapter (organized 1974 in Covington, Kentucky) and a member of the Lord Baltimore Chapter, Jupiter, Florida.
National Society Daughters of the American Colonists
National Society Daughters of the American Revolution
National Society of the Washington Family Descendants
Society of the Ark and The Dove
Sovereign Colonial Society Americans of Royal Descent
The Plantagenet Society
Since 1998, I have been involved in the design and production of cast bronze plaques and organizational insignia for military, historic, civic and lineage groups. Every time that I speak to a member of a lineage society, from the initial design through the completion of the project,
I always imagine that I am creating a plaque for my mother. I remember how important these projects were to her and to her lineage organizations.
