To provide a discussion forum in pursuit of our Eaton heritage, the Eaton Families Association has created this Addendum to our website in hopes of encouraging open dialogue on the historical and ancestral roots of our families.
The objectives of this Association include the collection, consolidation and preservation for posterity of genealogical data of our ancestors; the promotion of the principles of freedom and democracy for which our ancestors worked, fought, and died; and the cultivation of mutual acquaintance and friendship among our members.
