New Caledonia Chapter, Vancouver, British Columbia, is located on the west coast of Canada, a few hours north of Seattle. Our membership extends throughout the entire province of British Columbia.

The chapter was founded in Kelowna, British Columbia, February 1988, by organizing regent Helen Stewart. In 2001, regent Alys Monod moved the chapter to Vancouver. Past Regents Abbie Thompson and Lil Heselton have worked to increase membership. In 2003, Susan Conger, Units Overseas chairman and Anna Harder attended a luncheon to install Carolyn Kramer as regent.  Following Lil Heselton, Barbara Chaworth-Musters became Regent in May, 2013.

Our chapter membership, which began in 2001 with only 3 members, has increased to a vibrant 43 members.  New Caledonia Chapter sponsors many worthwhile projects.

We Welcome New Members

Our meetings are held on the second Saturday of the month, September to June. Please contact us for further information. Though members share a proven lineage and heritage as a descendant of a patriot of the American Revolution, American citizenship is not a requirement.  We will help with research on ancestors who participated in the American Revolution.
