"In every conceivable manner, the family is the link to our past, and the bridge to our future."  -- Alex Haley, author of Roots

 

Welcome Price Family members, our adopted family members, and friends to our website. We invite you to share in our family’s great history. Our branch of the Price Family started with the union of Frank Price to Pearl Foster in approx. 1904. From that bond came 10 children and a legacy of love built on a foundation deeply rooted in God. Our proud Price Family tradition of God and Love is the cornerstone of strength that we each have built our own individual families. That foundation is what has brought the Price Family to this point in our history and how we will continue to build our legacy. We, the Price Family, are a strong, proud, independent, hardworking, and educated people who will write our own story and leave an outstanding legacy for our children to emulate for generations to come.

We had a great time at our reunions in Denton, TX in 2014 and in Long Beach, California in 2016. It has been wonderful spending time getting reacquainted with loved ones. Our family is constantly changing, so it was a blessing to see all of the changes in our individual lives first hand.

Family Reunions are a great time to learn more about our family’s history and to strengthen the ties that bind us. It is a time to rededicate ourselves to the lessons, goals, and traditions that have made our family so strong. The African proverb says, "It takes a village to raise a child", likewise, it takes a family to give that child a sense of identity by teaching them about their rich heritage.

One of the goals for this website is to help our family stay connected, despite living across the U.S. and the world. This site is an attempt to keep a record of past and current events, in addition to, historical information learned about our family. If you have any news, events, pictures, or videos that you would like to share, we would love to add them to this website. Please feel free to post a message or send it to PriceFamily_CA@yahoo.com and we post it. I sincerely hope that through this website we can celebrate what it is to be a PRICE.

I pray for an abundance of love, prosperity, good health, and peace for each person in our family. May we continue to forge the bonds of love and family which was fortified at our 2014 and 2016 reunions. Let us continue to stay in touch and pray for our family daily. May God continue to bless you and your family.

See you all again in 2018 after we announce our host city for the next Price Family Reunion.

Webster defines family as a group of persons of common ancestry; a people or group of peoples regarded as deriving from a common stock; race; a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation or fellowship.
 
Aunt Frankie and Aunt L.E. were the epitome of the word family because they knew what it took to make a family. These two fiesty women had a way with words that could solve problems, end disagreements, or simply bring a conclusion to a difficult situation. They knew how to keep the nucleus of the family cooperating on one accord, although their may have been some bumps and bruises along the way. They knew how to make the family come together and to be the rock by which others could depend on.
 
It was common for them to pick up the telephone to say, "we are having a family gatheirng" at the roadside park on the southbound side of IH-35 American Legion Hall in Denton, Texas. Everyone was there without hesitation. They knew they could always count on their other siblings to get their prospective family members to attend.
 
After the passing of Aunt Frankie and Aunt L.E., Uncle E.D. became the one to gather the family. He made his first big attempt in 2005, when he suggested and helped facilitate the first multi-state reunion. His goal was to keep the reunions going for many years. His latest request was a reunion in 2014 to celebrate 110 years of our Price Family line.
 
Our call to action is for the seasoned Price family members to assist in Uncle E.D.'s vision and monumentous task of keeping the reunion going. The family reunions are our training ground for teaching the babes in our family about our proud lineage and strong heritage.

Did You Know? In most African cultures, the family represents kinship, an extended group of relatives, economic strength and political power. The family is considered a clan that promotes values such as unity, love, support and respect. Some of the more familiar traditions include a fervent respect for elders, rites of passage, systems of inheritance based on lineage and marriage as a contractual agreement between families, not just the bride and groom.
 
Did You Know? The African American family reunion was born after Emancipation. Once slavery ended, people sought out their displaced family members, putting out announcements for family members to gather and reconnect. These “reunions” were emotion-filled events, critical to the rebuilding of the Black family.
