We have received some inquiries about the upcoming International Bellew Reunion in Ireland.

The date for the 2019 Bellew reunion has not been determined as yet, but has previously been held in July. The exact date and place for the reunion are usually set by February, so I will post another update as soon as we have this information.

Event Update: Ballew-Jasper Reunion

The new date is Saturday, September 1, 2018, at 10:00 AM until…

The Pavilion at Russell State Park in Elberton, Georgia.

Dennis Bellew is the host of the reunion and promises some delicious barbecue, and everyone else takes their favorite covered dish!

There will be a discussion on our genealogy, some great food, along with a great time!
A battle in the Revolutionary War was fought at Russell State Park, which sits along the Savannah River.

On Sunday, as an added bonus, Dennis has kindly offered to lead a group up to Mt. Airy, NC, to visit the burial site of “Old Jacob” Bellew.   He has also offered to lead another tour on to Glassy Mountain in South Carolina, to visit other family sites, if enough people are interested in making the trip!  For those who want to learn more about our family heritage, and those who enjoy some of the colorful tales of our ancestors, this would be an incredible trip!

So please make your plans to join everyone for the Bellew-Jasper reunion in GA, on Saturday, September 1, 2018, followed by a day or two of touring family sites in NC and SC!

2017, A Year of Transition

To my extended family,

I first want to thank everyone for their patience and support through this past year. We lost a great deal with Paul’s passing these past few years who managed every aspect of the association’s online presence.  In the past year, we needed to recreate a new web domain, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts.

I want to personally thank, Barbara, Jeanie, Jean and Harold, Susan, and many others for working with me to start building out our online presence. Barbara especially by preserving the previous web site information in the archives which allowed me to transfer everything into our site,

I am finally getting back to my own genealogy with my 2017 goals to get through the “Ballew Family Journals”  and transfer those contents in building one online family tree.

Here are links the primary links:

Best and Enjoy the Reunion this Weekend!
