About Us Frisbie-Frisbee

About Us

The Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association of America was created in 1950 by Olin Eli Frisbee of Comstock, New York. Around 1910 the president of Wells College in Aurora, NY, Edward Selah Frisbee, visited Olin’s home seeking data for the 1926 “Frisbie-Frisbee Genealogy” book Edward was writing. Olin, sparked with the inspiration to bring his own family records up-to-date, embarked on a family-data collecting mission that would eventually bring him in contact with dozens of Frisbies all across the USA. Olin founded the Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association of America (FFFAA) to join together the people he’d connected with through his search.

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.
