Become a member and gain access to the Streeter–Adams family tree!


All members of the Streeter Family Association who are current in their dues may request access to the private “SFA: Streeter–Adams Descendants Project” Family Tree at Ancestry. A subscription to Ancestry is not required.


The “SFA: Streeter–Adams Descendants Project” family tree is an incredible compilation that intended to include every descendant of Stephen1 and Ursula (Adams) Streeter known to the Streeter Family Association. The content of the tree grows daily.  It is not just a database of names, dates and places; it includes digital images of primary and secondary sources, photographs, obituaries, stories, etc. The ever-growing content of the tree supersedes any book previously published on this large American family, by the Streeter Family Association or anyone else. Future books may be derived from this vast compilation but the content could never be presented in a single volume.


As a Guest in the “SFA: Streeter–Adams Descendants Project” family tree, you will be encouraged to provide additions and corrections via the built-in comment function. Depending on the quality and quantity of your contributions, the existing Editors may extend an invitation to join them in directly managing the tree. Your association’s Board is very excited to enable engagement and collaboration. Now you can make a direct and personal contribution towards documenting your branch of the Streeter–Adams family tree. Offer as much or a little as you like, at your convenience and all from the comfort of your home.
