“Since 2002, the Dillman Family Association (DFA) has been helping Dillman families throughout the world understand their family heritage.”
The DFA was formed to help everyone with an interest in learning about the ancestry of families that include the Dillman surname, or one of its many variations (Dillmann, Stillman, Tillman, Dielman, Dieleman, Dhyllmann, Dihlmann, Dilllaman and Tighlman). Membership is open to all who are interested.
Activities include a quarterly newsletter filled with human interest stories and the latest discoveries about Dillman heritage. A DNA testing project has helped us learn who is related to whom. A Dillman Library has ancestry records and artifacts from many family lines.
Dillman Genealogical Conferences (formerly known as the Mega-Reunions) are held every two years in different locations (Fort Wayne, IN; Indianapolis, IN (3 times); Roanoke, VA; Harrisburg, PA; Cincinnati Airport, KY) to discuss new genealogical discoveries and plan new activities.
*** We are planning a return trip to Germany for September 2015 ***
Please check back for updates, intinerary, and registration info.
The Dillman ancestry of some of our members has been traced back to the 1500’s and for other family lines our work is just beginning. We welcome inquiries, and would be pleased to help you learn more about your Dillman family ancestry.
Rod Dillman, 2014-2016 DFA President
Our Seventh Genealogical Conference (Aug 7-9, 2014) was a huge success!
