Welcome to the website of the Leftwich Historical Association

The Leftwich Historical Association was organized on October 10, 1992, in Lynchburg, Virginia, with sixteen charter members.   The Association was established as a non-profit organization devoted to assembling and preserving genealogical and historical information pertaining to the Leftwich family.  The LHA was incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia on November 3, 2000.

The LHA  annually publishes The Leftwich Heritage, a newsletter dealing with new genealogical finds and family interests.   An annual family reunion for all members is also sponsored by the Leftwich Historical Association.  For more information about membership please visit the membership page.

The LHA Website – This site has been designed to help members of the Leftwich family access information about the family as well as the Historical Association.  The information and resources available on this website will increase with contributions.  Please feel free to post questions, comments, and suggestions.  Thank you for visiting and your interest in the Leftwich family.

2019 Leftwich Reunion

The annual Leftwich Historical Association Reunion is October 18-20th this year and will be in Huntsville, Alabama. This year’s reunion theme is, “A Blast from the Past and Into the Future.” It is hard to imagine going from muskets to rockets in such a short span of history.

Friday evening will be a “Meet & Greet” at the hotel with a Westward Movement from Virginia presentation. Saturday afternoon we will tour the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center. Saturday evening banquet will include a presentation by Dr. John Severn, recently retired professor at the University of Alabama/Huntsville, and will speak about the political and economic events which took place in England during the time of Ralph Leftwich’s immigration to America.
