Abstract:
Family reunions are an important event in the lives of North Carolinians. The gatherings can involve several hundred people over a weekend or a dozen or so family members for lunch. It is the connection to the group, the traditions, and the heritage that is important. Silcox-Jarrett discusses three North Carolina families who have long-running family reunions: the Powell family, dating to 1588; the Brooks family, dating to the mid-1700s; and the Burgin-Lytle family, dating to 1677.
