Thank you

Higdon Hunting Party.5.5 X 4.2.front


We are really happy you have decided to join with us to further your genealogy goals and encourage more Higdons and their descendants to ‘be their best’ through higher education.

Thank you for purchasing a memberships(s), a book, and/or donating to our scholarship fund. Your transaction has been completed, and a receipt for your purchase/donation has been emailed to you by PayPal. [You may log into your account (if you have one) at to view details of this transaction.]

If you are a brand new member, expect also to get an email from the Higdon Family Association dealing with several practical concerns, such as the startup of our every-other-month Newsletter, an emergency phone number (if we don’t have one, yet), and details concerning our HFA Scholarship Fund registration as a tax-exempt charitable organization. 

We have over 40 years of experience researching Higdons, and their descendants. We have, so far, researched over 13,000 Higdon ancestors who have appeared in, or were the focus of, one of the many stories reported in our Newsletter. 

Finally, above you see a group of hunters, resting somewhere in the mountains of the eastern United States in 1905. You just may be related to them, since three of the five young men pictured above are Higdons. As you start your journey with us, you need to know that we have connected distant cousins as far away as fifth cousins, three times removed (and this was without DNA testing). If you’d like to learn more about the guys above, go to our Higdon Hunting Party page. Or, if you’d like to learn more about our Higdon Family Association in general, click here to go  to our Items of Current Interest page. Or, click here to go to our HFA Scholarship Program page.

Once again, it’s nice that we are working together.
