Welcome to the DuBois Family Association site!

We are very excited to welcome you to the newly redesigned DBFA website.  Please browse around all of the different pages and let us know what you think!

If you like what you see but can't seem to access all of the information you want to, please consider becoming a member of the DBFA and enjoy the benefits of membership, including extensive access to our website!  The Members only section contains our Newsletter archives, the comprehensive genealogy of the family of Chretien DuBois, and much more!  Current members can access this area with their unique login (user ID) and password. 

And be sure to come back here regularly to see new information and check out the Forums for any new questions about our family organization and individual family tree members, or other interesting DBFA and genealogy topics.

The DuBois Family Association has dedicated itself to assemble and publish the genealogy of the DuBois family. From 1968 to 1984 Ruth and William Heidgerd assembled and published 18 volumes of family history.  This comprehensive, detailed genealogy stands out for the richness of anecdotal information, and its exemplary letter/number system.  The Association has since added new information, corrected errors, edited the volumes, and the now 20 volume set was completed in the 1980s.  Printed copies are for sale in the DBFA Store, while members have access to the information in the Members Library.

In June 1996, the DuBois Family Association incorporated as a 501c(3) not for profit corporation with the State of New York.

Funds raised by the DBFA are used to preserve, restore, and repair the DuBois Fort (pictured above), which is our family Stone House located on Historic Huguenot Street in New Paltz, New York. The Association also continues to preserve and advance Huguenot heritage with educational programs at its reunion in New Paltz, NY every two years.  The Association works closely with Historic Huguenot Street and its programs to preserve the Huguenot heritage and the historic houses of New Paltz.
