Hereditary Order of the Signers of the Bush Declaration - HOSBD

An applicant must furnish proof of his or her blood relationship within the second degree of kinship to a Signer of the Bush Declaration on March 22, 1775. By way of explanation see the following:

Direct descent is self-explanatory. The applicant is lineally (directly) descended from the Signer.,

Collateral descent (or 1st degree of kinship) means the applicant’s ancestor and the Signer have the same parents.

Consanguine relation (or 2nd degree of kinship) means the applicant’s ancestor and the Signer have same grandparents.
