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. circa 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, thrived in Colonial America, & today have thousands of descendants living in the United States & Canada. Through its newsletters, Facebook Group, Triennial Reunions, and this website, GFA encourages George & Thomas Geer descendants to connect!
