We had a great conference in Salisbury, North Carolina in July. Some 40 people attended at least some part of the conference. Look for details and photos in the upcoming Chronicles. We also have some photos online here. Special thanks to John Eller for helping put together such a great event.

At the Conference Dan Liggett agreed to be the new editor of The Chronicles. We thank him and we salute Randy Poplin who's been an outstanding editor over the last several years. Dan asks that you remember to provide his with articles for upcoming issues. He also plans to re-publish articles that appeared in earlier editions of our quarterly publication.

Ed Eller, John Eller and Fred Bame recently searched for the John Jacob Eller property in Salisbury, NC in preparation for the July EFA Conference. That will be one of our places to visit on our Friday tour. We will also visit the Union Lutheran Church which was organized in 1774. The Pine Church was built before 1771 was also located in this area. On Thursday there will be geanological presentations.

We welcome new members Julie Bray and Paul Zarr to the Eller Family Association. Read more about them and their trip to North Georgia to find their "roots" here.
The 2017 Biennial Conference will be held in Salisbury, North Carolina, from July 26th thru the 30. Registration information is available here. Make your hotel reservations directly with the Courtyard Marriott. The conference location puts us in the area where we know several early Eller families settled not long after they arrived from Germany. And the area is still home to many Eller families.

One of our goals for the new website was to have a "members only" section. This is designed to allow anyone with a login and password (our members) to access the most recent editions of The Chronicles, the current membership list and other members-only features. To access this section, you must be a current EFA Member and must have requested and been approved for a login and password. If you do not yet have your login/passsword, use this link to request one. If you have already logged-in, you may click here to access the Members only page.
A new Eller History Book is available. "Eller History & Genealogy" is 776 pages with more than 350 photos and documents. For more on the book and how to order, click here.
