Lineage Societies: A Discussion with Colonel Ron Barnes

Wednesday, April 10th at 6 pm

Colonel Barnes, a member or head of many notable lineage societies, will speak to what they mean to our country and to you, how our historical memory is being preserved, what it means to be a participant.

In 2004 Barnes assumed command of the Pawtucket Rangers R.I.M., chartered in 1774 to protect the village of Pawtuxet. He is a member of the Massachusetts Society of the Cincinnati, The Rhode Island Sons of the American Revolution, The Rhode Island Society of Colonial Wars, Order of Founders and Patriots, Nathanael Greene Homestead, First Families of Rhode Island, and more.

This immediately follows the monthly meeting of the Mohr Library Genealogy Group, which starts an hour and a half earlier at 4:30, and all are welcome to both. Reply to this email or contact Grayce Moorehead, Associate Director at Mohr Library, for more information.
