The organization whose president was Barbara Wootton and membership included Bertrand Russell and Aldous Huxley was formed in 1932 and appeared to be socialist in nature. The Honourary Secretary, Hugh Leakey, made a number of suggestions regarding setting up a discussion group and books to read including a book he referred to as the ""Manifesto"" and may have been ""The Communist Manifesto"". There is also a reference in the letter to Ms. Estabrooks to the Saint John Cooperative Commonwealth Federation, (C.C.F.) which later evolved into the New Democratic Party of Canada. There is also some correspondence related donations of copies of published genealogies to various institutions including the New England Historic Genealogy Society, Acadia University, Library of Congress (Washington, D.C.) , the National Library of Canada and the New York City Public Library.

The genealogical charts are hand-produced, with no dates indicating when they were made.
