Who is KFA?
The Kimball Family Association, Inc. is a non-profit association of the descendants of Richard Kimball - from whom nearly all American Kimballs (whatever the spelling) are descended. Richard Kimball came to America in 1634, settled in Watertown and finally in Ipswich, Mass.
KFA Was Founded in 1967
Begun with a modest idea in 1967 and incorporated at York, Maine, in 1972, the Association has grown to a group of nearly 400 members in all parts of the United States, Canada, and in various countries abroad. In addition to the National Association, there are state and single family group chapters that hold separate meetings and activities.
The Association is dedicated to the gathering, verifying and correcting of family information toward the updating and revision of the family history "The Kimball Family in America", published in 1897 by Morrison & Sharples; to bringing the family together for fun and fellowship and stimulation of an awareness and appreciation of our past and present heritage; and to rekindle the family traditions and spirit which have developed and existed in America for over 350 years. All descendants are cordially invited to join the family in these pursuits.
What We Do
The KFA has succeeded in publishing "The Kimball Family in America, Volume 1, Volume II, and Volume III" which are available in our KFA Shop and we are currently working on "The Kimball Family in America, Volume IV & V". Each quarter, we distribute a newsletter which updates members on the Kimball Family genealogical research, reports news from the Committees, and items of interest about the Kimball Family.
