This page features a historical book or original document that was transcribed during 2005 as part of the Genealogy Today Subscription Data collection -- a project focused on capturing details about the lives of your ancestors, from their early years in school, through college and then into their careers, hobbies and group activities. The list of family names above represents unique last names of individuals found in these Franklin Institute records.
While an annual subscription costs less than ten cents per day, there is nothing wrong with being cautious about spending your research budget. That's why we have made this resource searchable -- you can discover possible matches before you subscribe. In records of this type, researchers may discover involvement in organizations that reflected the personal interests and hobbies of their ancestors.
