Membership in the Association is open to any person descended from, or married to, anyone of the surname Nims. Individuals wishing more information about the Association may write the secretary or treasurer at the addresses shown on the Meet our Family / Board of Directors page.  With the completion of the foundation volume, the goal is to continue collecting family data and David Nims, grandson of Godfrey Nims publishing records in our files. NFA has established a service & printing charge for publishing individual branches requested by our members. Click the "Email Us" link at the top of this page and request details about how to proceed with your request for family genealogical information. We have considerable data on lines in the four family branches. As of 2014 our archives showed approximately 30,000 names in the John line, over 19,000 in the Ebenezer line, and about 23,500 in our Thankful branch. The Abigail line has about 18,000 names so far, but we do have a great deal of material still to add to our database. 

All descendants of Godfrey Nims are encouraged to participate in the Nims Family Association and in the gathering of family data. If you have not yet sent in material to the Historian, we urge you to submit as much data as you are willing to, including anecdotes, photos, and genealogical information. Here are some areas we have found helpful in building our files:
