About the Chastain Chatter

The Chastain Chatter is an e-mail newsletter sent out to Chastain family members who are interested in family history, especially descendants of Pierre Chastain who was born in France in 1659.

The Chastain Chatter is an informal, friendly connection created to share family stories and memories. In the Chatter, you can also announce milestones (births, deaths, marriages, divorces, baptisms and religious confirmations, good news, etc.). You can also ask questions, send in information or news that may be of interest to the family, and announce Chsatain family reunions.

The Chastain Chatter is e-mailed to the Chastain Cousins and family members once or twice a month, mostly on Saturdays.

To subscribe, send a note to Karyl Chastain Beal at karylcb@gmail.com and include your name, city and state, and e-mail address. Write Chastain Chatter in the subject line to make sure your request is not overlooked.

To send a story or announcement or anything else be considered for a future issue of the Chastain Chatter, also contact Karyl at karylcb@gmail.com and put Chastain Chatter in the subject line.

The first issue of the Chastain Chatter was sent out on June 27, 2015. (It is free.)
