About the PDA


Purpose of the Association:
The PDA is an organization of those who feel that they might have descended from the family Poingdestre that has lived in the Channel Islands since the Norman Conquest. A member if this family, George Poingdestre, immigrated to the Colony of Virginia in 1657.

We invite inquiry from anyone who feels that she or he descends from a Poindexter ancestor and who would like to work with family releatives to learn more about her or his Poindexter heritage, to promote fellowship among kinsmen and preserve family history and memorabilia.


Information about the benefits of membership and how to join. Membership is open to anyone who submits an ancestral chart which tells how the applicant feels she/he is related to a Poindexter ancestor, who embraces "Purposes" set forth in the Association's Bylaws, and who pays annual dues.

The PDA holds annual family reunions in conjunction with its annual membership meeting.

History and Research: a collection of PDA and others' research efforts, including a gedcom database of thousands of Poindexter ancestors.

Committees: excellent opportunities for members to participate in the research of the family history or the management of the association.

Officers: who are the elected officers of the Association, and how to contact them.
