to the Chesapeake Bay Company website! As a Company of the Jamestowne
Society, we serve the Northern Neck and parts of the Middle Peninsula in
Virginia. Unlike most lineage societies, the Jamestowne Society does not
require membership in a local Company as a prerequisite to joining the
Society; however, many Society members choose to belong to Companies to
take advantage of extra opportunities during the year to learn more
about their Jamestowne heritage through attending interesting programs
and by associating with other Society members on a more frequent basis.
Society members may belong to two Companies.
currently belong to the Society, but are not associated with a Company
and would like to belong to the Chesapeake Bay Company, please send me
an e-mail with your membership number, date of admission to the Society,
complete name and address and phone contact information, and the name of
your Jamestowne ancestor. It is most appropriate for you to join a
Company near where you live or routinely travel, but we have members
from other areas, and would welcome hearing from you.
If you do
not belong to the Jamestowne Society but would like to, and anticipate
joining the Chesapeake Bay Company, you are welcome to inquire about
membership. The regular process for admission would be for you to
contact a member of the Society whom you know who would agree to be your
sponsor. If you live in an area other than the Northern Neck/Middle
Peninsula, you can check at the Jamestowne Society site to see if there
is another Company close to where you are. The Chesapeake Bay Company,
however, will always welcome Society members who are interested in
participating in our Company activities.
