What I love most about my job is going on adventures. These aren't trips to exotic places like Egypt, but rather ancestral "digs" into boxes of once-cherished, but presently discarded materials. On a recent adventure, I discovered the Heptasophs.
Among several boxes of unwanted junk, I came across two attendance books for a New Jersey based Conclave of the Improved Order of Heptasophs. Five dollars later (i.e. cost of the box) and this secret society was going to be my next challenge.
To read what I learned about this interesting secret order (including the identity of the seven wise men) and search the names in those two books, visit the Improved Order of Heptasophs page at Genealogy Today.
