BFNA Reunions




Pioneer Weekend 2017

October 13-15

Lawrenceburg, Indiana


A mini-national reunion is being planned for BFNA members by the Lt. Jacob Blasdel Branch in Lawrenceburg, IN, October 13-15, 2017.  One of the major benefits of attending this reunion will be the opportunity to visit the Lawrenceburg Public Library where the BFNA keeps its primary source materials. 

See Pioneer Weekend 2017 for an invitation from President Gary Gellert

 to attend the gathering.  See Pioneer Weekend Registration Form for a

 full description of activities being planned for the weekend.


BFNA national reunions are held every 5 years.  Every ten years when the year ends in 5 a national reunion is held near Pemaquid Point, Maine, where our ancestor, Ralf Bleasdale, arrived from England in 1635.  Regional reunions are determined by the officers in each branch.
