JFMF - What Now?

Since 1998 the JFMF has been the focus of a substantial effort by the Board and the Research Committee.  In February 2003, a report to the Board titled "JFMF - What Now?" was submitted by Gene Pennington, Research Director detailing the many issues surrounding the JFMF and making two (2) recommendations.  The Board approved both recommendations and now the JFMF's purpose and access to it has been significantly changed.

The recommendations approved by the Board were:

  • New Purpose for the JFMF:  The JFMF is a working database for research purposes -- not a database that we will try to keep as up to date and as accurate as possible.

  • We place the JFMF on the website and make it available to PRA members only.  UDATE:  Subsequent to this action, the Board voted to move the PRA Master File to our own website.  This is where our master database now resides.  It is accessible to current PRA Members only.

These changes will greatly affect how the JFMF is used and maintained and will allow access to the JFMF by PRA members.

The three words on the scroll of the Coats of Arms are "Vincit amor patriae"

"Vincit amor patriae" means "The love of my country prevails" or "Love of Country Conquers" which is the United States Army 28th Infantry Regiment's motto.   "Vincent amor patriae laudumque immensa cupido" means "The love of my country exceeds everything."

The following motto appears in English above the mountain cat of the original Baron Muncaster Crest.  "Firm, Vigilant, Active" -Virg. AEn. vi. 823 v. Muncaster b. Pennington
