2013 Dent Centennial Family Reunion Calling all Dent Cousins!
Planning for the 2013 Dent Centennial Family Reunion is well under way.
Save the date: Saturday, 6 July 2013, Musella Baptist Church, Crawford County, Georgia. Actually, the reunion is now morphing into a 3-day event with a Friday night Meet & Great, Saturday Reunion with Family Photos, and Sunday Genealogy Research & Field Trips.
Virginia Bentley Ellis is the chairperson for the Communications Committee. She has established an email address for our reunion. Send your contact information to her at: email@example.com
We need names of those attending, mailing address, email address, telephone numbers, and ages of children attending.
The information you send is IMPORTANT for activity planning purposes, as well as for formal invitations. As you think of and come across other "cousins" please send us their contact information as well.
We have 9 Committees in need of more volunteers. If you would like to serve on one of the committees, please let us know.
We are asking attendees to bring old family photos, portraits, documents, whatever to the reunion. Currently, we are amassing an amazing amount of old photos of your ancestors. Each attendee will be given a DVD of those photos.
If you can, it would even be better to email them in advance--even if you don't know who they are--we may be able to identify them. Then yours can be included in the DVD.
I will be sending out a planning update at the end of each month so I look forward to sharing more information then.

DNA Research We now have the results from a 67 marker DNA test from our oldest living Lanham male. The test results have been added to the Lanham study group at Family Tree DNA. The results show that we are among the expected subgroup of the Lanham family but no new connections so far. We all await more Lanham males to add their DNA tests to the group to expand its range.
FindAGrave FindAGrave.com is one of my favorite sites. I have been a contributor to it for over 10 years. I have added over 500 memorials to its current total of 92 million. Most of the graves on this site are also on FindAGrave.
