The primary objectives of this Society are:

· The preservation of the history of the Schwenkfeldian religious exiles and their descendants in America.
· The promotion of social interaction among its members.

The Society of the Descendants of the Schwenkfeldian Exiles is not officially affiliated with the Schwenkfelder denomination, a religious body with four churches in Pennsylvania located in Philadelphia, East Norriton, Worcester, and Palm, although some Society members are also active members of the Schwenkfelder denomination.  The Society does, however, work with the denomination and the Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center, 105 Seminary Street, Pennsburg, PA 18073, in its efforts to preserve the Schwenkfelder beliefs and history.

  1. Are Copys of Adolf Pannash Painting available for purchas? My Grandfather X6TH came over on that ship in 1737.
