The Jamestowne Society will be meeting May 12-13 at the Marriott in Williamsburg, Virginia. The question everyone is asking is, will the Queen attend?
[Carole E.] Morck said the Jamestowne Society has asked Queen Elizabeth II to attend their gathering because one of the queen's ancestors, Nicholas Martiau, qualifies her for membership.
Membership in the Order of First Families of Virginia is limited to descendants of those who helped establish Jamestown and the Virginia colony between 1607 and 1624. The group will not entertain requests for membership by anyone not invited into the association, according to the group's listing on The Hereditary Society Community Web site. [Link]
