Cousin Exchange


Join the DFAW Cousin Exchange

To participate in the Exchange and be put in touch with other “cousins” researching your DFAW lines, you must be a DFAW member. Once part of the Exchange, your name, and the surnames of the Founders or their descendants you are researching are “carried forward” across your years of DFAW active membership. You may request a change in surnames as your research focus evolves. We hope this benefit of DFAW membership will be rewarding and facilitates your submission of a Lineage Form review.



If you would prefer to send your DFAW Cousin Exchange Permission Form by email or postal mail, please download the fillable PDF.
