They had their 90th Family Reunion on Sunday, September 16th at Mounds State Park, Anderson, Indiana.

The Lanane's are a twig that grafted into the Magrann Clan by marriage.  They are the remnants of 13 brothers and sisters whose parents were born in Ireland.  Of those original 13, nine families still exist and have living descendants. 

Each year they move the responsibility of the reunion to a different family of the nine descendents.  Next year marks their 100th reunion.  They have met since the 1890’s, most every year except for some during the war, etc.  One of them is currently State Senator in the Indiana legislature – Tim Lanane.

They wish to send out a warm invitation to parts of their family they have lost track with: the Ziegler’s and the Frey’s.  If you know of ANY email or snail mail addresses or phone numbers of those branches, PLEASE forward them to this website so that they can reconnect, especially with their 100th reunion coming up.

Here is a photo of their 2005 reunion.
