Reunions

For over 110 years, Gilbert Belnap’s descendants have gathered at least 41 times now to renew family ties and honor their great heritage.  Reunions have been held in various locations in Utah and Idaho, commencing with the first reunion in October 1904, five years after Gilbert Belnap’s passing.  At least 13 reunions have been held in Hooper, which served as Gilbert’s residence for the last 30 years of his life.  Today, reunions are generally scheduled every two years in even-numbered years, usually on the second Saturday in August.

SAVE THE DATE!
The next Belnap Family Reunion is scheduled for Saturday, August 13, 2016 (locate to come).

Further details will be sent to all descendants who are in the member database.  To ensure that you and your family stay informed, please notify your Family Representative of your current address.
