Our Purpose

Of the Studebaker Family National Association

The Studebaker Family National Association Mission

Our mission is collecting, recording and sharing the genealogical history of family groups. We are an Unincorporated Association under Ohio Law, and the Internal Revenue Service has determined that we are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Donations and membership dues are tax deductible.

SFNA has published three volumes of the Studebaker family genealogy, The Studebaker Family In America.

See books in our store for availability, prices and ordering information. We are embarking on a project to computerize our genealogical information.  This project will take several years, but once done will be easy to update, and will be easier to manage than publishing in book format.

We publish a quarterly newsletter with updates on family doings, births, deaths, marriages, family stories, etc. It’s an interesting read, if we do say so ourselves!

SFNA also hosts a national reunion every five years; we also assist with planning and publicity for local Studebaker family reunions. Our national reunions feature workshops and seminars on various aspects of genealogy.

SFNA maintains its headquarters in an historic Studebaker log cabin located at 6555 S. State Route 202, Tipp City, OH 45371-9444.  Office manager is Debbie Welker who maintains the office from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Tuesdays. Telephone is (937) 405-6539. office@studebakerfamily.org
