...to the new DELANO KINDRED Web Site!
The DELANO KINDRED was founded in 1991 for the purpose of exploring the ancestry and genealogy of our common ancestor, Philippe de Lanoy. Philippe was born to Jan and Marie de Lanoy around 1602 in Leiden, Holland, and was baptized there on the 6th of November, 1603. In 1621, Philippe arrived in Plimoth (now Plymouth, Massachusetts) on the ship Fortune and some time later changed his name to Philip Delano. He is the progenitor of the Delano family in America.

NL #92, April - May 2020
In this issue of the Bonnes Nouvelles we include information about the 2020 Reunion and the 2020 Annual Membership Meeting in Manassas, Virginia. The extraordinary situation caused by the Corona Virus-19 has caused our printing establishment to be closed due to the “lockdown” in Northern Virginia. Consequently, this issue of the Bonnes Nouvelles will only be available on the DELANO KINDRED Website (www.delanokindred.us). We hope that threat of this virus will be greatly reduced by September to allow to the 2020 Reunion in Manassas to be held as planned. Besides the article about the 2020 Reunion and Annual Membership Meeting, we have included a Book Review of “America’s First Visit to JAPAN, April 29-May 8, 1791, Voyage of the Lady Washington and the Grace”, written by Scott Ridley and Hayato Sakurai. The story is largely based on the information contained in the Logbook of the ship Grace written by Samuel Delano Jr. You may recall the details of the Logbook and its preservation by the Duxbury Rural & Historical Society (DRHS) was discussed in the November-December Bonnes Nouvelles NL#91 on pages 10 & 11. Also included are articles about the donations to the DELANO KINDRED Contribution Program, the donation to the Plimoth Plantation and the opportunity to nominate a qualified organization to be a candidate in the Annual Charitable Organization Drawing. We look forward to seeing you at the 2020 Reunion and Annual Membership Meeting in Manassas in September.
