Benefits of Membership
As America grows more populous and more diverse, family lineage dating back nearly three and a half centuries in this country becomes more unique and more significant. Few families in America can claim such a distinguished heritage. The Skillman family is fortunate to be among the few.
Here are some of the benefits to you for joining the Skillman Family Association:
- You will learn all about our Skillman family in America, which descends from the first Skillman in America, Thomas1 Skillman, who arrived with the English Army in 1664.
- You will have online access to a blog about our Skillman family and related topics.
- You will have online access to a directory of Association members which will connect you with previously unknown Skillman cousins throughout the U.S.A.
