Exhibitor Spotlight: Jamestowne Society Kansas-Missouri Company

The purpose of the Jamestowne Society is to honor the early settlers, who have been documented as having lived on Jamestowne Island between 1607 and 1699, either as land owners or as members of the House of Burgesses or as other officials.

The objects of the Kansas-Missouri Company along with all the other Jamestowne Companies are: "To discover and record the names of all living descendants of those early settlers who made great sacrifices to establish our English speaking nation; and to unite these descendants to honor the memory of their settler ancestors, to record their deeds, and to do homage to the birthplace of Virginia and the Nation."
