|Who Are The Huguenot?
Hello! and Welcome to our Website!
Our Huguenot ancestors were French Protestants that either fled or remained in France at great peril and persecution between 1536 and 1787. Many thousands fled to Holland, England, Ireland, Switzerland, America, Cape of Good Hope, Germany, and Northeastern Europe. Members must show proof of lineal descent from either a known Huguenot or for a newly qualifying ancestor.
The Huguenot Society of Washington State began in 1956 in Walla Walla and we continue today. We hope that you will look at our website and find us so interesting you want to join us!
Our Society's purposes include Patriotism, Religious Expression, Historic Preservation, and Education.
