Your last name doesn't have to be DELANO to be part of the DELANO KINDRED.

If your surname is DELANO or one of its derivatives (DeLano, de Lanoy, De Lannoy, de la Noye or other variations), or the DELANO name is somewhere in your family tree, or perhaps you are simply interested in DELANO family history, we'd be delighted to have you join us.


Joining the DELANO KINDRED is easy. First, decide which category of membership would be appropriate. To view our membership categories, dues structure and Membership Application Form, click on the side menu links. Note: the Membership Application Form is in Adobe PDF format; your web browser may need an Adobe Reader plug-in to view this form.

Last, fill out the form and send it, with a check made out to "Delano Kindred, Inc." for your registration fee, to the address shown on the form. That's it! You'll receive a Welcome Letter from us with your membership information. If you've provided an email address, you'll also receive an email with your Delano Kindred Logon ID and initial password to access the members-only portion of this web site.
