Welcome to Our Website

The next Geer Family Reunion will be held in Ledyard, CT July 2026

Geer Family Association (GFA) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing & preserving the genealogy of George Geer (b. c. 1621) & Thomas Geer (b. 1623), brothers who at age 14 & 12 were put on a British ship by their uncle who asked the captain to "let them off" halfway out so they wouldn't inherit their father's estate. The brothers disembarked in Boston in 1635 without funds, friends or contacts, with merely the clothes on their backs, but thrived in Colonial America & today have thousands of descendants living in the United States & Canada. In its newsletters, Facebook Group, Triennial Reunions, and this website, GFA encourages George & Thomas Geer descendants to connect!
