DVHSS Annual Reunion Overview

Texas 2012Texas 2012Each year, members of the Descendants of Valentine Hollingsworth Sr. Society gather together to renew family ties. The reunions are generally held over a three day period and the location is moved to different locations around the country that have significant Hollingsworth heritage or are of significant interest to DVHSS members. The reunions generally include a day focused on touring one or more local Hollingsworth sites and a day devoted to the general sites of interest in the local area that cousins from other parts of the country may not have seen before. The third day is devoted to the Societies annual business meeting and to additional Hollingsworth interest sites. Two of the three days generally include a group dinner, often at a location that also has Hollingsworth connections.

They also provide an opportunity to discuss your Hollingsworth genealogy questions with other members from your Hollingsworth line and with organization genealogists. You do not have to be a member of the DVHSS to attend the reunion, although pre-registration for the event through DVHSS is required.
