Group Reunions

The major focus of this Family Reunion site is to publicize and make known as many family reunions as possible. However, in the family of man there are those extended groups that find pleasure in getting together. This page will publicize their activities.

This page will concentrate on reunions of "families" centered around extended blood affinity, ethnicity or culture, journey or emigration, racial affinity or geographical area but not political or other categories.
