AVAILABLE - ORDER FORM

The SOCIETY's PURPOSE
shall be to promote the science
of genealogy as it concerns
the PACE Family in America
....and ELSEWHERE in the world.

THIS SHALL BE ACHIEVED
through educational and research programs
and projects which discover, preserve, produce
and publish genealogical and historical information
on the PACE family.

TWO MAIN OBJECTIVES
WERE ADOPTED in 1967

  • 1- To publish a BULLETIN - quarterly newsbooklet in an effort to assemble data on earlier PACES and transmit it to MEMBERS

  • 2- To provide a means of bringing present day cousins together by means of an ANNUAL MEETING or FAMILY REUNION

My FIRST REUNION VISIT
I attended my first reunion in 1999
at HENDERSONVILLE, North Carolina

There is something very special about walking into a room full of people who you have never seen before and being treated like family. Then, too, is the special pleasure of meeting and getting to know all the people who have built the Society and kept it running and to finally attach a face to the name.

I was very surprised to find that the membership has a good mixture of age groups. I'm making plans to attend the reunion next year in Williamsburg VA and hope to take most of my family with me.

My final impression about this and other reunions is that we need these meeting more than we know. Just as we need to attend our local genealogical society monthly meetings. Most of us labor in isolation. We spend too much time in libraries, archives or our basement offices. Our immediate family does not understand or appreciate our love of history in general much less our propensity to spend more time with the dead than with them.

At least once a year we need to get together, to just to be together. While we can tour and meet and share new information, I believe the most important benefit is just being together.
I hope to see you next year in Salt Lake City.
