About the Association

The Israel Barlow Family Association (IBFA) was organized at a meeting held in the Bountiful Third Ward on April 8, 1954. The stated object of the organization was to "perpetuate the memory and genealogy of the descendants and ancestors of Israel Barlow and his wives.." Israel Barlow himself had done considerable temple work, and this spirit of temple and genealogical work has been continued throughout the years by his descendant's.

On March 16, 1967 the Israel Barlow Family Association was incorporated in the State of Utah as a non-profit corporation. On May 31, 1968 it was ruled exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c) (3) of the Federal Internal Revenue Code. Donors may deduct contributions to the association as provided by section 170 of the Code.

Why Join?

By joining the Israel Barlow Family Association you become an "ACTIVE" member of the Barlow extended family as opposed to a "SIDE-LINE" member. Also your membership will ensure that you and your family are numbered among Israel's descendents as recorded by IBFA.

You may join as a Paid Member or as an Unpaid Member. The difference between Paid and Unpaid membership is what site resources you can access. See table below.
