Hello Jenkins Family, Friends and Guests,
Welcome to Our Jenkins family reunion web site. The Jenkins family reunion web site has been in existence for approximately 15 years. It's primary goal was to provide Our family with a common communication link and point of interest for Our family's interaction. It also serves as an information site to keep us informed about key family events, such as Our annual family reunions, which are hosted by a different family city/group every year, which we have done for the past 34 years. Our web site is comprised of several things to keep us current. We utilize a family E-mail list, a monthly Birthday and Anniversary list. We have current information about Our family reunions, along with a picture archive of most recent and past reunions. We also run a timeline of past reunions along with a short description of theme and activities. We also have a topic known as family mail, a guestbook with a (direct to site) scroll bar and information about Our family educational scholarships. We have had Our family tree posted on site. (not current), but may soon return with improved security. There are many other items that are on Our site that are not mentioned, but are there to serve the family. The site was designed to serve the Jenkins Family, and can only be enriched by continued family input and interaction. Thank You for visiting The Jenkins Family Reunion Web Site.
The 2018 JFR is planned to be held at the Rio hotel/casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 36th Jenkins family reunion dates are July 15th thru 19th .
The 36th JFR registration information is still in the planning stages. With multi city, family groups hosting and working the 2018 planning.
The Jenkins Family Coat of Arms:
The 2002 Reunion in Detroit Mi. brought us an additional meaning of what family is about. The Jenkins Family Coat of Arms and Family Crest was developed and created for the Jenkins family by Mr Chris Allen. He studied and researched this project far and wide and established a symbol that our family may look upon and be Proud of. He introduced us to Our new family Crest at the 2002 Detroit reunion. He explains the meaning of what the Coat of Arms is all about below. So please click on the link below to visit a site dedicated to Mr Chris Allen's work.

Family Member saves suicidal man:
A River City man is lucky to be alive, thanks to the quick actions of a Vicksburg Police Officer (Adarryll Dent). He is the son of Theresa Dent of Ita Bena, MS. Adarryll risked his life in the line of duty as a police officer to save another mans life. This rescue was captured on his patrol car camera and was played back on WLBT News ch3 out of Jackson MS.
We would like to acknowledge Adarryll for his bravery and commitment to the force, and for being a fine example to his family and community. Its fine examples such as yourself that make the Jenkins family name shine bright! Thanks also to Barbara Henderson for sending the info to the website, and to Theresa Dent for sharing in her sons experience.

Reunion Picture Archive: I would like to ask for family help in fulfilling Our goal of having pictures on Our web site to reflect every reunion represented on Our site. I have updated the site to show each year with a color and picture count to assist in identifying which years need help. I plan on applying more updates (More Pictures) and have been trying to standardize the picture archives into one format. (It is a timely process)
35 Years of Being The Best! Last but not least! Barbara Henderson. Thanks for being you! Your the inspiration that ties us all together. Thanks for your continued help with online e-mail contacts that could be potential new family members.
Thanks for visiting!
