BELNAP FAMILY ORGANIZATION: REUNIONS
For over 100 years, Gilbert Belnap's descendants have gathered at least 39 times to renew family ties and honor their great heritage.  Reunions have been held in various locations in Utah and Idaho, commencing with the first reunion in October 1904, just 5 years after Gilbert Belnap's death.  Today, reunions are generally scheduled every two years in even-numbered years, usually on the second Saturday in August.  
SAVE THE DATE!
The next Belnap Family Reunion is scheduled for Saturday, August 11, 2012, in Idaho.  Click on the reunion link below for additional information.
Further details will be mailed to all descendants appearing on the mailing list.  To ensure that you and your family stay informed, please notify the Belnap Family Organization through your Family Representative of your current address.  For a list of Family Representatives, click here:
