Historical Collections

As we become aware of other on-line information related to the Captain James Skilton family we will add links to that information here.

 

Several collections of Skilton documents are available at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center.  To locate these collections click on the following link and then enter "skilton" in the search box:  The Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center

Reunion Reports

It is intended that each year the latest Skilton Family Reunion Report will be added to our website.
 
Because of the personal (and relatively current) information that is included in the Reunion Reports, this information is stored on secured pages.  To assess the information you must have created an account on our website.  The procedure to create an account is:
  1. Click on the "Log in" button above (or click on “Skilton Family Reunion Reports” below).  
  2. Click on “sign up for an account” and provide the requested information including your email address and a password.
  3. The Webmaster will automatically receive an email that you have created an account on our website.
  4. The Webmaster will approve your account and send you an email stating that you can now access the secured pages. Normally the Webmaster will respond to your request in less than 24 hours.
  5. After receiving the email from the Webmaster you may return to the skiltons.org website, click on the “Log in” button (or click on “Family Documents” and then click on “Skilton Family Reunion Reports”), and provide your email address and password.
As time allows it is our intention to also add the Reunion Reports from prior Years along with an index that would make it easy to locate specific genealogical information. 
 
We currently have all the Reunon Reports from 1919 to the present so as you can see, this project will probably take a long time to complete.
 
You must have Adobe Reader installed on your computer to download and open Reunion Reports and other files in PDF format.

The Teeth of the Rake

The Teeth of the Rake was published in 1964 in preparation for the 100th Annual Skilton Family Reunion in 1965.  The purpose of this little brochure is to acquaint you with the wonderful heritage which is ours by virtue of the marriages of our ancestors with the Averys, the Judds, the Steeles, the Candees, the Clarks, the Whites, and others. 
 
Teeth of the Rake is available here as a PDF file.  Click on the file name link below to download it and view it using Adobe Reader.

Skilton Family Association Controlling Documents

At the 132nd Skilton Family Reunion on July 19, 1997 the Family approved Articles of Incorporation (which were created from the previous Articles of Association) and revised By-Laws. 
 
The Articles of Incorporation were created in anticipation that we would Incorporate in the State of Connecticut.  For a variety of reasons, we never completed the incorporation process.  Thus the Articles of Incorporation are really functioning as Articles of Association and should be read as such.

We may make past editions of the newsletter available for download.
