About Us Frisbie-Frisbee

About Us

The FFFAA was created in 1950 by Olin Eli Frisbee of Comstock, NY. When Edward Selah Frisbee (president of Wells College, Aurora, NY) visited Olin’s home seeking data for his 1926 “Frisbie-Frisbee Genealogy,” Olin was inspired to bring his own family records up-to-date. Olin’s subsequent 38-year family-data collecting mission would bring him in contact with Frisbies all across America and inspire him to establish the Frisbie-Frisbee Family Assoc. of America.

Now, over 69 years since its creation, the FFFAA is still going strong. Olin, who passed away in 1964, would be proud of the continued dedication and passion of its worldwide members.
