Greetings one and all. I am so excited that you have found our web site. Please explore and learn more about the Poindexter Descendants Association. Let me tell you how I felt when I joined and attended my first family reunion. After meeting so many people from the US, England, and the Isle of Jersey, I didn't want it to end. Now I have the privilege to gently lead this organization of "cousins" into the future.

The Poindexter Descendants Association endeavors to inform and educate members and the public about family history and promote fellowship between the diverse branches of the Poingdestre family around the world.
The PDA hosts annual family reunions and other social opportunities, lead and support family history research through genealogy and DNA, and educate and inform members and the public through our web site, newsletter, and email.
Founded in 1982, the PDA was founded by a group of family genealogists that found each other and met for the first time. They discovered that by sharing research information proved beneficial and agreed to form an organization. The PDA was oringinally incorporated in 1984 in Oklahoma.
