In my previous post, I listed some of the general lineage societies.
This post is a listing of some of the many First Family or Pioneer Certificate Programs at the state level.
I have only listed those who have a listing of proven ancestors or pioneers on their website.
If you don't see a state listing of your choice - just ask The Google if one exists.
