An overlook of the site

This website is the product of, and a sound overview, of the Montague Family Association Inc. Our Historian is Robert V. Montague III of Navarro, Fla. Robert has devoted much of the last 13 years of his life researching the life and descendents of Peter Montague b.1603. In this site and in our communications referred to, as Peter1. Robert has produced a book of his research, “The History and Genealogy of Peter Montague of Jamestowne, Virginia 1603-2003” The two volume set is a bit over 3000 pages. He has corrected many of the mistakes that appeared in the 1886 family history, “The History and Genealogy of the Montague family in AmericaYou will frequently find references to HGMFA when discussing the Montague family history with family members. This website uses some tidbits from Robert’s books to give a taste of the information contained in his books. The only way to get the BIG PICTURE is to purchase the books. If you have specific questions we will try to answer them and guide you to information.
The other side of the coin is Richard Montague who emigrated to Massachusetts in America, in 16__. He was a founding father of Hadley, Ma in 16__. Our resident expert on Richard1 is also a Richard Montague and resides in Ebenhausen, Germany. He also has spent many years researching the Richard 1 line.
Between these two gentlemen resides most of the known history of the Montague family in America. By joining and supporting the MFA you can help them carry their research further into history, and gain access to that information.
Please look around our website and see if you find something new and exciting about your family history.

The new Theme..

I’ve been doing some revamping on the MFA website. When it comes to websites, we are all constantly re-vamping. The theme we are using is somewhat limited in the number of menu items I’m able to use, but the sub-menus are less limited. I’ve been trying to group items under sub headings that will be easier to find. For instance, you can find the minutes to all of our 2014 meetings under the Board of Directors heading, and that will be under the About heading. Any current news not related to the reunion will either be right here on the Home page. There will be a 2015 Reunion header coming soon with news about the coming family reunion that will be held in Virginia early August 2015. The best way to find your way around the site is to explore. There is a lot of information on here, ant there are a lot more items being prepared to come online. We have exciting news that will be released this year from out research department. Some things that will set the genealogy community on it’s ear if our research bears fruit. If you want to be in on the news as it breaks, I urge you to join the MFA to help fund this organization, so we can continue our research. So, enjoy your look around, and we hope you find something that will astound you.
