Descendants e.mail address:

    I have been asked to reserve a space for the listing of  e.mail address of those people
    who descend from some one who arrived in the U.S.A. in the ship Isabella in 1846.
    If you will send me your e.mail address I will list it here.

      "The Isabella Society"

Purpose:  To recognize and honor the heritage of our forefathers who came to America aboard the vessel Isabella;  Who suffered hardships at sea;  Who were joined together through this most trying experience so that we, as their descendants, might realize the benefits of their pursuit of opportunities in this new world.
Goals:  1) To share experiences which are known about that voyage and about those passengers who make that difficult trip from Rotterdam in October of 1846 to New York on December 19, 1846.
             2) To research the history of the vessel and its Captain, J. Francis Kelly.
             3) That succeeding generations might bond together and be identified in a commonality of purpose as was fostered on that ocean voyage by our ancestors.
