Greetings Family and Friends,

Season's greetings! We wish you good health and prosperity in the new year. As you may be aware, 2016 marks the 19th biennial celebration and genealogy conference of the Kinfolk Club's Lesesne/Lesane Reunion. This is the first time the reunion has been in the "steel city" in 35 years and we are honored to be hosting this prestigious event, Many of you have let us know excited you are to see the event return to the city in which it originated and we are working hard to see that when you come, you enjoy Pittsburgh to the fullest. 

To that end, we have booked a destination hotel right at the pinnacle of the famous three rivers, close to downtown and numerous locations for which Pittsburgh is famous including: The Incline, PNC park, The Senator John Heinz History Museum, The Children's Museum, the Carnegie Science Center and the Warhol Museum. And in addition to the special bus tour we are planning, you can also enjoy city views and news via the "Ducky" tour, a vehicle than travel both on land and water. 

You'll be amazed by the amount of activities you'll be able to discover and  experience on your own, as well ans the times we've arranged to gather together to enjoy each other and learn the Lesesne/Lesane heritage.

Welcome Kinfolk!

Technology has caught up with us! Welcome to the new Kinfolk blog. We hope this will be the space you come to get all your information for upcoming family reunions, news from other chapters, as well as notices on graduations, marriages, and other noteworthy news from family and friends.

This will also be the space to place business notices or services being offered by family. Fairly soon you'll be able to contact your chapter president for placing news in this blog, but in the meantime, please send articles to me, Christine Bethea at with your news and info. I will be acting Editor-in-chief and get your info posted. Also other family members can be added as administrators so stories can be shared from all over the country.
