Congratulations Oklahoma on 100 Years in 2007! 
The 1889ers Society Celebrated Our Centennial in 2005 !
The 1889ers Society was founded in 1905 by people who made The Oklahoma Land Run of 1889 which opened the Oklahoma Territory for settlement. It is continued by our descendants and friends. Descendant Members of The 1889ers Society are direct lineal descendants of the pioneers who made the great Oklahoma Land Run of 1889 as well as those interested in Oklahoma history. Membership in The 1889ERS Society is open to all Friends of Oklahoma!

Find Your Ancestors

The 1889ers Society welcomes all people, but we give special distinction to those who are descendants of those who "made The Run of 1889" into the Oklahoma Territory.  To qualify, you must know the legal description of the land your ancestors homesteaded. Now there's a new tool.  The Oklahoma Genealogical Society has published a CD-ROM so you can just look in your computer to find the start of the trail of your ancestors. It provides Township, Range, Section and County of the land, as well as the Volume & Page of the tract books.  Most importantly it is searchable by Last Name, First Name & Date of homestead.   That's enough to become a Descendant Member and it's a good start for your genealogy study.

It costs $20 and is well worth it!

Passed Away...

Two of our members have passed away recently: Lenes Brasel Pendley in April and Doral Hopper on Sunday, Memorial Service on Friday, July 29 at the First United Methodist Church in Moore. 

Those of you who attended our last 1889er Picnic at Ben Black Park may remember Doral who charmed everyone, dressed to the "nines" and making sure all knew she would soon be 98 years old.
-- Linda Chandler Verges  27 July 2016


"Thank you Linda, Mike and I went to church with Doral for years.  She was a go getter who rallied for seniors everywhere! " -- Cindy Melton
