    3. Hello, I just signed on and I am interested in learning more about the Order of the Eastern Star. I have seen the organization mentioned in some of my relatives obituaries and now I am curious. Many of them were Masons. Is this list to cover all Orders or a specific lodge? What is the difference from Masons? What were the requirements for membership?

    3. Dear Sean, A few of these, you have answered for yourself! <g> The Order of the Eastern Star was the female version of the Masons (Freemasons). When men-folk decided perhaps they ought to let the women join, they decided that it would be called "The Order Of The Eastern Star". ;o) For more information on the history of the orginizations, check these links...... http://www.msana.com/historyfm.htm (men-folk) and http://www.msana.com/women.htm for women-folk. And for requirements, you can check this one.... http://www.msana.com/linksus.htm they say, in part, "The requirements for joining Freemasonry, such as age, vary depending on your location. See the links page for the Grand Lodge in your state and contact them for local requirements and a lodge near you." This list will be for Orders in general. I don't think, at this time, it would be necessary to have different lists for different areas, though, hopefully, that may be required someday.
