The Amasa Mason Lyman Historical and Educational Society aims to preserve and promote education regarding the history and legacy of Amasa Mason Lyman, his wives and family. We hope this Society will be a blessing to his numerous descendants and help unite his family and keep his history alive. The explosion in interest in family history occurring presently shows that there is a hunger for people to understand their heritage and this Society is a gathering place where this family can connect with extended family and find enriching and uplifting information and stories about our ancestors.
The Society began in August 2001 when fifteen descendants gathered in South Jordan Utah and established the Society as a nonprofit educational and family organization. The original founders were Clayson Lyman, Jay & Geniel Bishop, Ted Jones, Mark Lyman, Mat & K’Lyn Lyman, Rosemary Palmer, Scott & Lyn Lyman, Duane & Ann Bishop, J. Stan Bishop, Jean Kidd and Richard R. Lyman. The Society has been led by several talented and dedicated Presidents since then, Jay Bishop, Ted Jones, McKay Platt, Greg Lyman and David Busath, who were ably supported by numerous Board Members. Scott Isaacson agreed to become president beginning in 2018. The Society owes much to these and all the other volunteers who have dedicated their time and talents.
The Society has organized and sponsored “Expositions” held every five years beginning at Filmore, Utah in 2003, Salt Lake City in 2008 and in Fillmore in 2013 and 2018. The Society has also helped to create videos and publications, many of which are or soon will be available on the webpage, and has sponsored or supported other family gatherings, such as “Lyman Days” at Bluff Utah, and other events. The Society has sent out periodic newsletters and all of these are also archived here in the webpage.
We encourage all descendants of Amasa Mason Lyman and family and friends to join the Society and to help keep alive the wonderful heritage we share.
