Reunion attendees in front of the Botanical Gardens in Balboa Park, San Diego for the 2015 Stidham* Family Reunion.
Everyone is invited to join the Timen Stiddem Society, no Swedish heritage is required.
Descendant Members are those who can prove descent from Dr. Timen Stiddem. If you're uncertain of your ancestry but believe you are a descendant of Timen Stiddem, we can assist in documenting your lineage with our extensive Stidham* Family Tree database.
Associate Members are those who don't knowingly descend from Dr. Stiddem, but enjoy learning about this fascinating immigrant and his family from Sweden in the 17th century, who played an important roll in the New Sweden Colony as it's first doctor. Many genealogical institutions are complimentary members in this category.
Membership Dues for either category are $20 per year.
