The Hodges-Hodge Society was formed in November 2006 by researchers of Hodge and Hodges families, who met in Houston to share information and ideas. They decided to informally organize to set up a framework for data sharing and cooperative research. The Society has since held meetings in Richmond, Virginia, Taunton, Massachusetts, Salt Lake City, St. Louis, and Charleston, South Carolina. Meeting participants have generated several promising ideas for gathering, organizing, and archiving Hodge(s) family data. The society has set up a searchable database of Hodge(s) genealogical information.
The Patriarch Page, which had been hosted at worldfamilies.net, is available here on the Hodges-Hodge Society web site.
