President’s Welcome

Juanita Nichols Jones

We are so pleased that you have chosen to visit our Huguenot Society of Georgia website.  We invite you to learn more about our lineage society.  By providing you with opportunities to explore your ancestry; we hope that you too will discover a Huguenot ancestor in your lineage.

The Huguenot Society of Georgia is under the umbrella of The National Huguenot Society.  We have placed the “Register of Qualified Ancestors of The National Huguenot Society” across Georgia in all major libraries with genealogy sections.  Huguenots were protestants who fled from religious persecution from France to many parts of the world in the sixteenth and seventeen century.  Many Huguenots came to America where they assimilated well as highly skilled craftsmen and artisans.  Their talents in the arts, science, and industry were a significant gain for America.  At least nine of our U.S. Presidents were of proven Huguenot descent and possibly many more!

Our society has two membership meetings a year.  We celebrate our Huguenot heritage with lunch and informative speakers.  We also enjoy warm fellowship with our members and guests.

You are invited to get in contact with us and explore your heritage with a great group of folks!

Juanita Nichols Jones, President
