2021 80th COUNTS FAMILY REUNION INFORMATION
The face to face 2020 reunion was canceled due to Corona Virus. Instead, on 8/1/2020, we participated in a virtual online reunion on Zoom, due to Carol Deel's kindness. See the official minutes of the 79th Reunion under 'minutes'

Our president, SUE COUNTS, opened with a welcome to all attendees and went over some business.
Several of our kin presented discussions, videos and Powerpoint presentations:
Chad Counts discussed a DNA project - what it tells us, what we know and what we are still looking for. He has ruled out certain Counts lines that are not related to us.
Dr. Brett Compton presented by Powerpoint some never-before-seen documents & photos of 'Preacher Bill' William Sutherland.
Phyllis Counts sared a video compilation of some private potos of E.J. Suterland
Phyllis Counts Raker detailed a project of similar looking Counts kin, not even from the same lines!
Marie Rasnick Fetzer rounded out the offerings with a wonderful Powerpoint presentation set to music, showing photos of numerous Counts kin and detailing some of the research findings she has spearheaded in pursuing earlier history of John & Mary Counts of Glade Hollow in Frederick & Page counties. She has an indepth website where she will be compiling the most up to date findings: keyser-counts.org
The meeting was recorded and will be posted to this website.
